Colston (shoulder) is listed as probable for Sunday's game in Indianapolis.

EDGE Analysis

Colston might have been able to play in Week 6 if the Saints hadn't been in the Thursday game. His absence due to a separated shoulder will likely last just one week, but he still carries minimal appeal, with 18 receptions and 28 targets in five appearances this season. Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead are clearly ahead of Colston.

Colston (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, the Saints' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

After suffering a separated shoulder in Week 5, Colston missed the Saints' subsequent tilt last Thursday against the Falcons. His limited showing Wednesday isn't enough to forecast active status for this Sunday's game at Indianapolis, so owners should monitor his activity level as the week progresses. Nevertheless, the 32-year-old has a career-worst 11.1 YPC and no touchdowns through five games, which has so far quelled his viability.

Colston (shoulder) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Falcons, NOLA.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Colston didn't practice this week and was listed as doubtful on the final injury report. His absence should leave more snaps for Willie Snead, who is on pace for 1,219 receiving yards, despite starting the year behind Colston and Brandon Coleman in the pecking order. Colston's separated shoulder reportedly isn't too severe, but even if he's back for Week 7, he's clearly fallen far behind Snead.

Colston (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game against the Falcons, the Saints' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

After sustaining a separated shoulder Sunday in Philadelphia, it's no surprise that Colston is poised for inactive status on a short week. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Colston only has a slight separation, which bodes well for his long-term status. With Colston sidelined, Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead should dominate the wideout reps.

Colston (shoulder) was present at practice Tuesday but did not participate, Evan Woodbery of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

After suffering a separated shoulder against Philadelphia on Sunday, Colston's chances of playing in Week 6 do not appear to be great, especially considering the Saints are on a short week, playing Thursday against the Falcons.

Colston (shoulder) was present for the portion of Tuesday's practice that was open to the media, ESPN's Mike Triplett reports.

EDGE Analysis

After suffering a separated shoulder in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, Colston seems unlikely to be ready for Thursday against the Falcons. Outside of very deep leagues, Colston's availability is only significant in terms of how it might impact the snap count of fellow wide receiver Wille Snead.

Colston suffered a separated shoulder Sunday against the Eagles, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per the report, Colston could also be dealing with some structural damage, with the New Orleans Times-Picayune relaying that the wideout is slated to have an MRI on Monday afternoon. At a minimum, we'd expect Colston to miss Thursday's game against the Falcons, with the veteran wideout's likely absence paving the way for Brandon Coleman to see his share of snaps in the Saints' offense, along with top wideout targets Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead.

Colston gathered in three balls (on five targets) for 36 yards, before leaving Sunday's game at Philadelphia with a shoulder injury, PennLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

No details have emerged regarding the ailment, but Colston was donning a sling on his right arm following the contest, according to Evan Woodbery of the New Orleans Times-Picayune. While Colston's production has tailed off this season, his status will be one to watch as the week progresses.

Colston caught four passes on five targets for 19 yards in Sunday night's win against the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Colston was not much of a factor in Week 4, with Drew Brees seemingly limited to short throws due to his injured shoulder. Further, he once again lost playing time to second-year pro Willie Snead, who led the Saints with six catches for 89 yards, as Colston was on the field for only 41 of the Saints' 73 offensive plays (56 percent), according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Brees still looks to Colston when he wants to move the sticks on third down, but with Colston essentially becoming a part-time player in New Orleans, his upside is limited. The Saints will face the Eagles in Week 5.

Colston had four catches on six targets for 47 yards Sunday against the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Despite a change in quarterback from Drew Brees (shoulder) to Josh McCown, Colston's production wasn't terribly different from the first two games of the season. Unfortunately, that wasn't good for fantasy owners, as Colston has not reached even 70 yards in a game this season while also failing to score a touchdown. McCown looked comfortable in the pocket, but Colston's fantasy upside is quite limited in a lot of formats right now with Brees injured.
