Steelers Injury Report: Willie Colon has surgery but hasn't been placed on IR

Ed Szczepanski-US PRESSWIRE

Steelers left guard Willie Colon will miss the team's Week 15 game against the Dallas Cowboys after having knee surgery.

Expect the Steelers offensive line to take on the same look it has over the last three games.

Left guard Willie Colon will miss at least the Steelers' Week 15 game against the Dallas Cowboys after undergoing knee surgery Monday. The move will likely land Colon on injured reserve for a third consecutive season.

That roster move hasn't happened as of yet, likely as the Steelers weigh their options and wait for a practice or an as-of-now unannounced workout of a free agent.

All indications suggest Colon will be out at least a few weeks, which would put him out for the remainder of the season.

The team also said right tackle Mike Adams and cornerback Ike Taylor will miss the game as well. Adams (ankle) has been out since suffering a high ankle sprain in Week 12, and Taylor fractured his ankle in the Steelers' Week 13 win over Baltimore.

Outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley is expected to practice this week, and could make his return this week.
