Marques Colston has Arthroscopic Knee Surgery

Just saw this over at the Times-Pic and pooped a little in my pants...

New Orleans Saints receiver Marques Colston had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Tuesday to "clean out some loose bodies," according to Coach Sean Payton. 

Wonderful timing! It's always great to be missing your teams best receiver right before the playoffs. But Sean Payton isn't making as big a deal about it as I am...

But Payton said Colston hasn't been ruled out for this Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and that he doesn't expect Colston to be sidelined too long.    

$&#^%! The Saints are screwed this weekend! Because if Payton says it's not a big deal, than we know it really is a big deal. After all, coach is always accurate and forthcoming with his injury information, right?

I'm not the only one who thinks Colston is definitely out this weekend. Gregg Rosenthal over at Pro Football Talk agrees...

there's no chance he could play just five days after surgery.     

I guess not having Colston for this Sunday isn't that bad. What worries me if whether he'll be ready the following week once the real games start. 

Fingers crossed.
