Tomlin Says Rookie Marcus Gilbert Will Take Colon’s Place on O-Line

Willie Colon is done, and the Steelers are going to quickly try to move forward with an offensive line that is going to turn to a rookie to take Colon’s place.

Coach Mike Tomlin today stated that rookie Marcus Gilbert will be getting the first crack at right tackle, replacing Colon who will miss the remainder of the year with a torn triceps muscle.

The tackle is set to have surgery today, Colon’s agent, Joe Linta said. “Willie is devastated, but has vowed to come back as soon as humanly possible,” Linta said.
