Marques Colston expected to play against Dallas Cowboys


After missing Week 9, there were questions if Marques Colston would be able to suit up for the New Orleans Saints in Week 10. Those questions have apparently been answered as it’s being reported that Colston will be back in the Saints lineup tonight, giving New Orleans yet another offensive weapon:

Last week, Saints receiver Marques Colston missed the team’s loss to the Jets with a knee injury.  For Sunday night’s showdown with the Cowboys, Colston officially is listed as questionable.

Per a league source, Colston will play tonight.

The wide receiver has been a shell of his former self this season, only averaging 48.9 yards per game, this after posting 72 in 2012.

Either way, getting Colston back on the field can only be seen as a good thing for the Saints, who are hoping to get the former Hofstra star back into his number one receiver role.

There is no word on if Colston will be on a snap count, though, in an expected shootout with the Cowboys, he should still put up numbers regardless.
