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.
