The Jets received some bad news at the beginning of OTAs, as Willie Colon is sidelined with a knee injury. It will require surgery as he needs his knee scoped (arthroscopic surgery) per Rex Ryan.
I'm told RG Willie Colon will be sidelined 6 weeks (knee surgery), but will "definitely" be ready to take field by TC. #Jets

Brian Costello was at OTAs and he tells us that Oday Aboushi played right guard in place of the injured Colon.
Oday Aboushi played RG today with Willie Colon out. Aboushi played tackle last season but Jets want him to know both positions #nyj

It is early, and it is only a scope, so that is good that Colon is getting this taken care of now. The Jets need the veteran to help anchor the offensive line.
