Saints receiver Marques Colston was also held out of team drills with his shoulder injury -- though he was in attendance for the early portion of practice that was open to the media.
Colston seems unlikely to play Thursday, especially since the Saints re-signed veteran receiver Joseph Morgan, who has been bouncing on and off the roster this year. The Saints released defensive back Don Jones to make room for Morgan.
Colston struggled against the Eagles last week and the announcers pointed out he often kept his arm straight at his side late in the game - obviously making it hard to catch the ball. Willie Snead has emerged as the team's WR2.
NO WR Joseph Morgan - Week 14, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 14: Morgan vs. Panthers
Joseph Morgan failed to get on the stat sheet for the Saints in their Week 13 win over the Steelers. He did manage to play 18 offensive snaps but failed to get targeted in the victory. Morgan has no fantasy value.
