I think it's just precautionary at this point as a backup plan for Colon. They are resting him most of this week and I wouldn't be surprised to see him practice Friday and play Sunday making it a moot point. Keep the Ratties guessing, I say!
I hope you guys are right, the steelers can't afford anymore set backs on that line with so many play makers out or hobbled
