Colston caught 45 passes on 67 targets for 520 yards and four touchdowns in 13 games this season. Colston's tenth season in a Saints' uniform was by far his worst, as he set career lows in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns. Colston missed the Saints' final two games, and as the season progressed, he lost significant playing time to second-year pro Willie Snead. Although he's signed through 2016, the long-tenured Saint could be a cap casualty this offseason.
Colston (chest) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons. With Colston out for a second straight week, Brandon Coleman will join Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead in three-wide formations. Colston should be healthy long before training camp, but he'll probably have to accept a pay cut if he wants to stay with the only team he's ever played for. Even then, the Saints may just prefer to move on.
Colston (chest) didn't take part in Wednesday's practice, the Saints' official site reports. Colston hasn't practiced since taking the field in Week 15, as a chest injury is currently plaguing him and forced his second absence of the season this past Sunday versus the Jaguars. As a result, his practice participation will be of interest in advance of Sunday's season finale in Atlanta.
Colston (chest) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Jaguars, Evan Woodbery of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Unable to practice this week due to a chest injury, Colston will rest up with one game remaining on the 2015 slate. Because Drew Brees will attempt to play through a torn plantar fascia, the remaining receiving options, namely Brandin Cooks, Willie Snead, Brandon Coleman, and Ben Watson (knee), may have their work cut out for them.
Colston (chest) is not expected to play Sunday against Jacksonville, NFL.com's Rand Getlin reports. Though Colston was listed as questionable on the Saints' Friday injury report, Getlin is reporting that the veteran wideout will not be able to play Sunday against the Jaguars. Owners should wait for further confirmation from the team before removing him from their lineups, but if Colston is ultimately unable to play Sunday, look for Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead to see the bulk of the targets while Brandon Coleman or tight end Ben Watson could see a slight bump in targets.
