Colon Out After Surgery; Woodley Could be Back Sunday in Dallas

There was some good, some bad on Tuesday as head coach Mike Tomlin talked about the latest injuries for his Pittsburgh Steelers.

The biggest news of the day was the team declaring that guard Willie Colon is out for the time being, as Monday he had surgery on his knee, this after having problems with it over the last three weeks.

Colon is for sure a no-go on Sunday in Dallas, and most are betting he’ll wind up on IR in the next week or two.

“He will be out for several weeks,” Tomlin stated. “There is no real update on him other than that. We need to let a day or two go by before we look at the totality of his possible return or not. Just know he had surgery yesterday on his left knee, the one he has been dealing with.”

Also out this Sunday will be tackle Mike Adams and cornerback Ike Taylor.

Another player to watch from an injury front is CB Cortez Allen. Tomlin said that Allen suffered a hip flexor against the Chargers, and will be limited in practice this week.

For the good news of the week – LB LaMarr Woodley should return to practice this week, and it all goes well he will play.

    If the Steelers want to help their offensive line problems during the upcoming offseason , they need to show Willie Colon the door . This guy is a train wreck that has cost the team on to many occasions to count . Every week its repeated false starts and holding penalties and this is from a veteran player . He did it at right tackle and now he continues to do it at left guard . In addition , the team has to constantly reshuffle its lineup because this guy is out for multiple games every year usually finishing the season on injured reserve . Bottom line , get him out of here .
