Marques Colston not practicing, but would play if it mattered - [Full Article]

For the fifth practice over the last six days, the New Orleans Saints gave wide receiver Marques Colston the day off from practice Wednesday but the veteran said he would be ready to go if the upcoming game were the regular season.

"If this were September and we were getting ready for week one, I'd be out here practicing," Colston said.

Fantasy Impact: 

The fact that Colston is not practicing is worrisome, as is the swelling in his knee. But he also says he feels good enough to practice for and play in a regular season game. But how will his knee respond then? The situation is muddy (to say the least), but Lance Moore and Robert Meachem are looking better and better, while Devery Henderson is on the verge of relevancy.
