Marques Colston 'working towards' 100 percent health - [Full Article]

It's become highly notable when New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston actually practices two consecutive days like he has Monday and Tuesday, considering how little Colston has participated in training camp because of an aching foot injury.

Colston admitted Tuesday he's not 100 percent healthy at this point despite dressing out for practice the past two days.

"That's OK," Colston said. "I'm working towards it. I still have couple of weeks yet (until the regular-season opener vs. Atlanta). I'm still taking my time with it."

Colston has missed more than a dozen practices throughout the duration of camp thanks to a foot injury that lingers to last season. He started training camp on the physically-unable-to-perform list, but returned for a couple of practices leading up to the preseason opener against Kansas City.

Fantasy Impact: 

Fantasy owners should not let this dissuade them from drafting Colston in the 4th/5th round of 12-team drafts. He should be able to play through whatever pain is experiencing. He did not miss a game last season.
