Marques Colston Shoulder

Seen favoring it at the end of the game after that pretty slick diving catch. Went in for x rays after the game. Any updates?

One injury after the other for this guy, first the wrists, then his knee and now add in a potential shoulder injury.

I'm not sure why anyone would draft him where he was ranked.

Really liked Meachem's draft value and breakout potential this year. Looks like Henderson might have some bye week value too.

Colston can't stay healthy, and Moore, while very good, is also pretty smallish.
I could see one of Meachem/Henderson become a pretty decent # 2 WR this year with how much the Saints throw it around.
Obviously Graham is the teams actual #1 or #2 best option.

Just heard on local show from an NFL Insider:

Colston. Clavicle. Broken.

Haven't seen this confirmed anywhere yet...

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports that Marques Colston broke his collarbone in Thursday night's NFL opener.
Glazer puts Colston's timetable for return at four weeks, but that's probably optimistic. Lance Moore's groin injury has continued to linger, and Robert Meachem and Devery Henderson both stepped up for big nights at Green Bay. Moore would be Colston's logical replacement outside and in the slot. If Moore doesn't get back soon, look for Meachem and Henderson to start with Jimmy Graham perhaps seeing a bump in targets. Colston owners should try to hang onto him as an injured WR5, hoping Glazer's return estimate proves right. It's tough luck for Colston, who made an impressive return from offseason microfracture surgery with 81 yards in the opener.

I'm really starting to like my WRs now. As to whether go Meachem or Henderson, I've had Henderson for who knows how many years, and he's done nothing but disappoint. Kind of glad that I rolled the Meachem die.

Meachem's the guy to own in New Orleans right now. Anyone who owns Henderson or Meachem just landed in heaven for the next 4 weeks with this injury. Colston was the wildcard in New Orleans and now he's out? Goldmine for the owners who own Meachem or Henderson IMO.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

Theres no way Colstons back in 4 weeks like they are saying in fact I'd be suprised if hes back in 10. I'm really kicking my self for dropping Meachem for Antonio Brown now and I almost picked him back up right before the game too but couldn't pull the trigger. With Moore having a groin injury and now Colston's collar bone the NO WR committie got a lot smaller.

This is a big bump for Meachem, Henderson and Graham.

FYI:

Coach Sean Payton told reporters in Jacksonville that Colston (collarbone) has been medically cleared and will play against the Jaguars on Sunday, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Recommendation: That's a more concrete assertion than Payton gave the New Orleans media during his Wednesday press conference, but assuming no backtracking here, then Colston will have easily beaten the initial estimates that he'd miss four games.
