Saints wide receiver Marques Colston suffered a broken collarbone in Thursday night’s loss to the Packers.

Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports that Colston will miss approximately four weeks with the injury. Four weeks is usually the best-case scenario for a broken collarbone; players frequently miss more time than that with collarbone injuries.

Colston caught six passes for 81 yards in the game.

This is Colston’s sixth NFL season. In four of his first five years he’s gone over 1,000 yards, and last year he was the team leader with 84 catches for 1,023 yards.
