New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston has agreed to restructure his contract in order for the Saints to create some salary cap space.
Huddle Up: Colston plays nice with his contract; in turn, he'll remain a key cog in one of league's most productive passing games--as well as a solid, if sometimes frustrating, fantasy contributor.

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston left in the second half of the Week 12 game against the San Francisco 49ers due to a head injury. He passed the concussion tests and was cleared to return to the game.
Huddle Up: The Saints can ill afford to be without Colston, their leading receiver, who took some hard shots in the game. He was able to record 4 catches for 36 yards and a TD -- his eighth of the season and the 56th of his career -- setting the franchise record.

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston has caught at least one scoring pass in five of his past six games.
Huddle Up: The Raiders, Sunday's opponent, don't figure to offer much resistanc, either, ranking 11th in terms of the most fantasy points to opposing WRs.

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (foot), listed as questionable for the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, has struggled this season with seven grabs for 120 yards through two games. A foot injury has held him back, and interim coach Aaron Kromer indicated Colston wasn't a certainty to play Sunday, Sept. 23. 'If we feel like Marques Colston can't run well enough to get open, then he won't be in the game,' Kromer said. 'But on gameday, if we feel like he is ready to go, then he'll play.'
Huddle Up: For Colston owners, it's the dreaded game-time decision. Check out the Huddle's Game Day Inactives Report on Sunday morning to get the latest info before setting your lineup.

New Orleans Saints interim head coach Aaron Kromer said WR Marques Colston's foot injury has been hampering his performance so far this season. Colston has seven receptions for 120 yards through two games. "You could say that hindered us a little bit, he didn't run as fast as he normally does," Kromer said.
Huddle Up: Colston has also been limited by the volume of targets directed at Jimmy Graham and Darren Sproles. He's perpetually nicked but has remained reasonably productive; as the foot injury clears, expect his numbers to climb back towards his typical levels.

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (foot) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 7, and is listed as questionable for Week 1.
Huddle Up: Colston was injured in the Saints' opening game a year ago, and doesn't figure to be at full strength if he plays Sunday. New Orleans has plenty of other options in the passing game, so Colston is looking like an iffy fantasy start at best.

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (foot) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 6.
Huddle Up: This is the same mysterious injury that kept the wideout out of practice Wednesday, but it's still not expected to sideline him for Sunday's season opener against the Redskins. The Saints, however, have plenty of options in the passing game, and if Colston's health will be better served by a decrease in plays or targets in Week 1, that's almost sure to happen, so start him with caution.

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints interim head coach Aaron Kromer said WR Marques Colston (foot) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 5, because of a sore foot. Kromer said Colston should be able to practice Thursday, Sept. 6.
Huddle Up: Marques Colston injured? Shocking! Glad to see this seems to be minor and precautionary more than anything, but seeing one of your top WRs sit out practice has to be a bit disconcerting. He should be good go to for the game barring a setback, so start with confidence.
