Steelers Lineman Willie Colon & Chris Scott Both To Have Surgery Wednesday
Not only did the Steelers lose right tackle Willie Colon for the year on Monday, it has now been announced that rookie offensive lineman Chris Scott suffered a foot injury while working out at the University of Tennessee last week as well. Both Colon and Scott are scheduled to have to surgery on Wednesday. Colon tore his right Achilles and will be out for the year. The seriousness of the foot injury to Scott, one of the Steelers fifth-round picks n this year\’s draft, is unknown, but he surely will not be ready for the start of training camp regardless. Being down two lineman now justifies the reason the Steelers are close to signing free agent Flozell Adams. It would not be surprising to see another body signed for camp as well.
UPDATE: It has been reported that Scott has a broken foot and will be out about 3 months after surgery on Wednesday. He would miss all of training camp and it seems only logical that the Steelers might place him on the PUP list or injured reserve.
