Colston out 4-6 Weeks with Thumb Injury

This sucks! (New Orleans Pro Football)

The Times-Pic has just reported that Saints WR Marques Colston will miss a month or more after having surgery to repair a ligament in his left thumb.

This one hurts as Colston is obviously our best receiver and a huge threat, though he wasn't much of a facor in last weeks game against Sunday. We may now know why. Hopefully his recovery time is on the shorter end of those projections and we see Marques in a Saints uniform by the middle of October. Fortunately we are deep at the wide receiver position and Brees is great at getting the job done by spreading the ball around. I expect this means Meachem will dress this Sunday and make his NFL regular season debut. Our receiving corp as a whole will certainly need to step it up in the coming weeks.
