Pittsburgh Steelers left guard Willie Colon left Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers in the second quarter with a left knee injury. His season is likely over. If Colon can not play, it will be the third consecutive season he has not finished. "It's terrible for him, man," center Maurkice Pouncey said. "For him to be dealing with that for the last couple of years, and now we don't know how this thing is going to turn out ... I feel terrible for him." Pouncey moved to left guard when Colon left the game and Doug Legursky came in and played center. The Steelers playoff hopes are still alive after Cincinnati lost at home to Dallas. They are in the same position as last week. Despite their 34-24 loss to the San Diego Chargers Sunday at Heinz Field, the Steelers control their own destiny. They will make the playoffs by winning their final three games or by winning two of their final three games if one of them is against the Bengals on Dec. 23 at Heinz Field. The Steelers and Bengals are both 7-6 and tied for second place in the AFC North Division. But the Steelers are a spot ahead of the Bengals for the final spot in the AFC playoff race, and would own the head-to-head tiebraker against them if they win on Dec. 23. "It doesn't make you feel good," safety Ryan Clark said. "It's like we're fighting to be the best of the worst teams. We don't want that. That's how it feels right now. You can't clap when you see Cincinnati or Baltimore losing when you play worse than both of those teams. We don't take any solace in that. We're not excited about that. The thing it does is it gives us an opportunity to get in the playoffs."
