Saints WR Marques Colston had an arthroscopic procedure on his right knee, making him questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Buccaneers. New Orleans has already clinched a playoff spot, but can win the NFC South with a victory and a Falcons loss to Carolina.

The receiver didn't practice on Thursday, but the team hopes he will be healthy enough to face Tampa Bay. Colston is the team's leading receiver with 84 receptions, 1,023 yards and seven TDs in 2010.

The way we see it

Until more information comes out from the Saints on the reasons for the procedure, it is tough to tell how serious of a knee injury Colston is facing. The hope is that it's just a precautionary measure and that he will be able to play on Sunday.

Fantasy Spin

As one of the few teams with something to gain on Sunday, expect the Saints to play their starters and try to win in Week 17. That means Colston will be seeing passes from Drew Brees, which increases his value. If Colston doesn't play, look for Lance Moore, Robert Meachem and Jimmy Graham see more opportunities in the passing game.
