Willie Colon tore his triceps

Pittsburgh Steelers offensive tackle Willie Colon tore his triceps Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens and is expected to miss the remainder of the season, a league source confirmed.

Colon is expected to be placed on injured reserve. He's set to undergo surgery to repair the damage Tuesday. Colon was signed to a five-year, ) million contract prior to the season. Now, the Steelers' offensive tackle situation is in a shambles.

The Steelers could elevate Marcus Gilbert to the starting lineup.

Or they could also re-sign a veteran tackle. Former starters Flozell Adams and Max Starks remain unsigned.
