According to, Steelers right tackle Willie Colon has suffered an injury to his Achilles tendon.

The extent of the injury is currently unknown, but it is not a good sign for the Steelers offensive line.

According to Adam Caplan, the injury occurred while Colon was working out.

It can never be a good sign when a player is injured, but an injury to the Achilles could be a season-ending injury.


Profootballtalk is now reporting that the injury is a torn achilles tendon, and that Colon will miss the 2010 season.
