FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- New York Jets right guard Willie Colon needs knee surgery and is expected to be sidelined for about six weeks, but should be ready in time for training camp. Coach Rex Ryan announced Wednesday that Colon needs arthroscopic surgery after being injured during a recent workout before the start of organized team activities this week. "Safe to say, its going to be a while if hes going to come off a scope," Ryan said. But a person with knowledge of the situation who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team didnt announce details said Colon should "definitely" be able to participate on the field when training camp opens in late July. Oday Aboushi, a fifth-round pick last year out of Virginia as a tackle, worked at right guard with the starters at practice Tuesday and Wednesday. Ryan said Aboushi, who did not appear in any games last season, has looked good filling in for Colon. The Jets have several other guards on their depth chart, including Caleb Schlauderaff, Patrick Ford, Will Campbell, a sixth-rounder last year, and they drafted Dakota Dozier in the fourth round out of Furman earlier this month. The 31-year-old Colon was re-signed by the Jets in March to a one-year, $2 million deal. He started all 16 games last season, but was recovering from a torn right biceps suffered in the season finale. "He was really doing well on his rehab, but thats going to hold him back," Ryan said. "Well see how it goes, but were not going to throw him out there. Were not playing the Patriots anytime soon, so weve got to do whats best for him." http://www.teamcolombiasoccer.com/Guillermo-Celis-Copa-America-Jersey/
