Jay Glazer of Fox Sports has just reported that Saints wide receiver Marques Colston will miss approximately 4 weeks of the season with a broken collarbone, which he suffered late in last night's loss to the Green Bay Packers. From Glazer's Twitter:
M Colston broke his collarbone and will be out approx 4 weeks! Tough loss
That's crappy news. Fortunately the Saints are deep at wide receiver. We know they can be successful without Colston but it sure helps to have him in the lineup.
Colston has always had to take those tough hits on passes caught over the middle and in traffic. Last night was certainly no different.
