Willie Colon's Agent Addresses Achilles Injury

Earlier, we noted that Pittsburgh Steelers offensive tackle Willie Colon may have suffered a season-ending Achilles injury. James Walker from got this brief update, including a quote from Colon’s agent.

Colon will have more tests to confirm the injury on Tuesday, but the Steelers believe Colon needs surgery and five to six months of rehab, the source said.

“It looks like it’s an Achilles [injury],” Colon’s agent Joe Linta said. “We want to wait to confirm it, but that’s kind of our worst fears.”
