A new offensive coordinator and a new philosophy aren't the only changes going on in the Pittsburgh Steelers camp.

Offensive linemen Willie Colon, who has played his entire six-year career at tackle, will move to guard, according to NFL.com.

Colon, 29, who only played one game last season, tore a triceps muscle in the season opening loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

"I think it's going to be a great transition for him, and he'll probably be one of the best guards in the league right now," third-year center Maurkice Pouncey told WTZN-FM in Pittsburgh.

Colon has started every game since being drafted in 2006 out of Hofstra.
