Steelers Left Guard Colon Likely Lost for Season
- Updated: December 10, 2012
By Ray Fittipaldo / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,
Left guard Willie Colon exited the game Sunday against the San Diego Chargers in the second quarter with a left knee injury and his season is likely over. Colon had missed the past two games with a left knee injury before returning Sunday. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin did not disclose the extent of the injury in his postgame news conference, but his teammates expressed disappointment.
If Colon does not come back, it will be the third consecutive season he does not finish. His triceps was torn in the first game of the season a year ago and was placed on injured reserve. In 2010, he did not play at all after sustaining an Achilles injury in the summer.
“It’s terrible for him, man,” center Maurkice Pouncey said. “For him to be dealing with that for the last couple of years, and now we don’t know how this thing is going to turn out … I feel terrible for him.”
Pouncey moved to left guard when Colon left the game and Doug Legursky came in to play center. Pouncey and Legursky did the same the previous game against the Ravens.
