Marques Colston Suffers Broken Collarbone

Last night in the Packers 42-34 win over the Saints, WR Marques Colston broke his collarbone on the final drive.  Colston made a diving catch deep inside Packers territory setting up a possible game tying touchdown in the finals seconds.  The injury occurred when he dove for the ball and landed awkwardly on his shoulder.  Doctors are saying Colston should be out about 4 weeks, as that's the normal healing time, but if it doesn't heal as quickly as they think Colston could miss more time.

If available you should now add Robert Meachem or Devery Henderson as they both scored a TD in last night's game and will be the main targets for quarterback Drew Brees going forward without Colston.  Also keep an eye on injured WR Lance Moore who sat out the opener with a groin injury.  He scored 8 TDs last year for the Saints and if he's able to go next week should see a lot of targets.
