The Saints will be without Marques Colston for at least four weeks as he recovers from the broken collarbone he suffered in Week One. Colston, no stranger to injuries, has a high pain threshold and he's played through discomfort before, but it's been suggested that four weeks is a very optimistic target date for his return. The Saints' leading wide receiver in four of his five seasons, Colston is more likely to miss a significant chunk of the year. New Orleans has great talent and depth at receiver, but no one to match his size or physical playing style. All of the Saints' receivers will be asked to step up, and Adrian Arrington, who was active but didn't play in Week One, and Robert Meachem, a candidate to start in place of Colston, stand to see their involvement increase the most. WR Lance Moore, who missed Week One with a groin injury, is also trying to return, but his status for Week Two is uncertain.
