Jets guard Willie Colon will need surgery.
Guard Willie Colon seemed upset after game and didn't talk to reporters Sunday or Monday. Here's why: He tore a bicep, per source. #Jets— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) December 31, 2013

Colon had a good year for the Jets, but this will probably once again make him a cheap option for teams on the free agent market. The big question for Colon was whether he could stay healthy. This marks the fourth consecutive season that ends for Colon with a serious injury.
This is why the Jets should at the very least explore other options. Colon has a tough time staying healthy, and his position is brutally physical. Perhaps with the injury they can get him back for 2014as a cheap backup, though.
