Saints receiver Marques Colston has been remarkably consistent in his NFL career, especially considering he’s been consistently injured.
Colston underwent microfracture surgery on his right knee this offseason, according to Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Colston had the same surgery performed on his left knee in 2009 and had a procedure done on his wrist this offseason too.
It’s amazing Colston topped 1,000 yards for the fourth time in five years despite the injury. He played through it for most of the year before aggravating the injury in Week Sixteen, undergoing arthroscopic surgery, and then playing in the Saints’ playoff loss to Seattle the following week.
Colston always manages to perform, but the litany of surgeries could hurt his free agent stock in 2012 when his contract runs out.
Teammate Robert Meachem is coming off his own significant surgery on his ankle. Both players say they’ll be ready for training camp.
