According to Rich Cimini, Jets’ guard Willie Colon left the game on Sunday without talking to reporters.  He seemed quite upset as he blew past them.  Now, we know why.

It turns out that Willie tore a bicep during the final game against the Miami Dolphins this past Sunday.  It will require surgery which he is scheduled to have later this week.

The recovery time, according to Cimini, is four months, which could make things tough for Willie if he is looking to meet with other teams.  He is an unrestricted free agent, and the recovery will take him into the free agency period.

Colon was a strong asset to the Jets’ rebuilding offense, and the offensive line, grading out strongly against the run and decently against the pass.  He brought a nastiness with him in 2013, showing himself as a Rex type of guy.

I am sure that the Jets would like to retain the services of Willie Colon.  Best wishes to Willie on his procedure and a speedy recovery.
