Jets right guard Willie Colon must undergo arthroscopic knee surgery and will be sidelined indefinitely. Colon, who received a one-year, $2 million contract from the Jets in March, had been recovering from biceps surgery. Coach Rex Ryan did not specify what the injury is, but said Colon injured the knee while working out. “A knee needs to be scoped, so he’s going to have that. That’s something that just came up,” Ryan said. “He was really doing well on his rehab. That’s going to hold him back. We’re not going to throw him out there. We’re not playing the Patriots anytime soon. We have to do what’s best for him.” The loss of Colon is significant for the Jets, who do not have much depth along the offensive line. Second-year player Oday Aboushi replaced Colon with the starting offense during OTAs over the last two days. Aboushi played tackle last season, but was inactive for every game.
