While working out during the offseason in June 2010, Colon tore his Achilles tendon, forcing him to miss the entire 2010 NFL season.
On July 29, 2011, Colon signed a five-year deal worth $29 million with the Pittsburgh Steelers. In week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens, Colon tore his triceps and missed the rest of the season.
