Colon may have sustained serious arm injury

I thought one of the few positives from the Steelers’ 35-7 loss to the Ravens was that no one got seriously hurt.
That may not be the case.
I’m hearing that starting right tackle Willie Colon suffered a triceps injury, one that may possibly end his season. It apparently happened late in the fourth quarter, after Ben Roethlisberger got sacked, which resulted in a fumble and a pile up with Colon in it.
If the injury is serious, look for the Steelers to bring back Flozell Adams or Max Starks.
Adams played right tackle last season in place of Colon, who ruptured his Achilles tendon in June of 2010.
Colon made a full recovery from that injury and the Steelers signed him to a five-year, $29 million contract in late July.
