Marques Colston caught three passes for 38 yards in Week 9 against the Titans.

Nov 8 - 5:45 PM

Marques Colston caught 8-of-9 targets for 114 yards and a touchdown in New Orleans' Week 8 win over the Giants.

With the Giants going "defense optional," Colston came back from the dead to set 2015 highs across the board. Colston's score was a 53-yarder where he literally wasn't covered. It was an embarrassing defensive lapse from Tom Coughlin's unit. With half the season in the books, Colston finds himself on pace for 58/716/2. He's not a viable WR3.

Oct 21 - 5:35 PM

Marques Colston (shoulder) is inactive for Week 6 against the Falcons.

As is LT Terron Armstead. Colston now has 10 days to heal up for Week 7. NFL Network has reported that could be all the time he needs.

Also inactive for the Saints are P Thomas Morstead, QB Garrett Grayson, CB Damian Swann, DE Obum Gwacham and OG Tim Lelito.

Oct 11 - 3:45 PM

Marques Colston secured 4-of-5 passes for 19 yards in Week 4 against the Dallas.
