Pittsburgh Steelers received more bad news Monday when starting right tackle Willie Colon suffered a potentially serious Achilles injury. When I talked to Colon's agent, Joe Linta, the feeling from Colon's camp is that the ailment might be season-ending.

Either way, Colon's potentially serious injury puts another dent into Pittsburgh's offense. After trading receiver Santonio Holmes and having quarterback Ben Roethlisberger serve a conditional six-game suspension, it's the last thing Pittsburgh needs right now.
