Marques Colston is already back

AP

When it was reported that Marques Colston would only miss four weeks with a broken collarbone, we heard folks say that timetable was unrealistic.

It did turn out to be slightly off: Colston is back after missing only two games.

“He’s clear. He’ll be up this week,” Sean Payton said in a conference call.

Colston was officially “limited” in practice this week, but it sounds like there’s no doubt he’ll play.  The Saints’ multifaceted offense did just fine without Colston, averaging 35 points during two straight wins.

  1. Wow. The healing power of ground up body organs extracted from still living fetuses is nothing short of miraculous. Praise the Lord!

  2. back so soon. now I need to decide to start him or Meacham on my fantasy team now. I thought I had a couple more weeks.

  3. That’s pretty amazing to be back in 3 weeks from a broken collarbone. Good luck to him I hope he’s not rushing back. Charles Rogers career never got started and ended because of broken collarbones.

    If god didn’t like it, I’m sure it could have found a way to stop it from happening. So much for omnipotent.

  5. No way he broke his collarbone. Must of been a bone bruise. I broke both of mine at two different times and I couldn’t do anything for 6 to 8 weeks. Even HGH couldn’t heal a bone that fast.

  6. This is called agent encouragement.
    AGENT: “Marquey Marq… how’s that neck thingie you got?”
    MC: “Sore man… real sore.”
    AGENT: “You know… your boys are averaging 35 points a game while you’re out. They haven’t missed a beat. In fact, it looks like Dev and Lance and Meach can handle this. You know where that leaves us, right?”
    MC: “Get Miyagi.”

    Yes, but you are no Marcus Colston.

  8. This kind of thing makes me wonder how serious the injury really was. I know that some people heal faster than others but essentially 2 weeks to heal is pretty ridiculous.

    Wrong procedure there d-hole.that’s stem cells(which are awesome) . your mean hgh.although I do hope one day one of your aborted fetuses cures my cancer.

    And someone mentioned hgh wouldn’t work that fast.yes it would.if its used(abused) the right way yes if would.however I believe this was a minor fracture and not a break.I also think he’s not ready and if I’m on the opposing team I’m smashing him in the collarbone, especially if it really was a break and he’s trying to come back early from it.look for him to injure his collarbone more and be out for 6 games or maybe the season if this is true

  10. I don’t imagine he’ll be much of a factor this week so he’ll remain on my fantasy bench. He should help open thins up for Meechum and Moore a bit more though. Just have to guess which one is the right one.

  11. As a saints fan I’ve come to realize that Sean payton lies about injuries, or he omits truth at best. That being said, PFT, maybe you should mention that he only said this to the JAGUARS press team seemingly in an attempt to mess with their heads . All he told the New Orleans media was that colston was running routes and is listed as limited. What it boils down to is…I’ll believe it when I see it.

  12. At a press conference after Colston was injured Payton said it was a fracture and was surgically repaired with a plate.

    “Was it a break or a crack with Marques?
    “It was a fracture. What they put in was a small plate to stabilize it. He’s out of a sling and everything now. Now it’s just soft-tissue flexibility. The time frame when we announced it was four weeks and I believe the timeline is very realistic. He’s feeling good. It’s just a matter of getting the stitches out and letting the bone heal. The type of fracture he had was one that was fairly clean and was able to be repaired pretty thoroughly.”

  13. notice how all these “This Guy is on HGH” type comments only surround winning teams?

    You never see anyone accuse Peyton “bicep” Hillis of being juiced…. just sayin’.

  14. Maybe it was just a hairline fracture or something. In any case, Marques Colston has always been an incredibly fast healer. Look how quickly he healed from arthroscopic knee surgery at the end of last season. The guy only missed one game.

  15. Hey do you people understand that he went into surgery on the 9th? and he wont play untill the 2nd? thats over 3 weeks sense he had it done

  16. No way it was broken, 6-8 weeks minimum if it was. Even if he had surgery and put a plate in to fix it it’s impossible to be back in three weeks. I know from a couple very painful experiences. Had to of been just bruised

    Or fractured O.o

  18. Look, if the docs have cleared him – so what if it was or was not broken, bruised or just soft tissue pain & damage, the main thing is he is ready to rock again. All you medical wanna-bes should register in a medical school.
    Just hope he doesn’t get out there too soon and get banged up again. Go Saints!
