New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston is active for Sunday's game against Kansas City and will start.

Saints receiver Marques Colston was questionable for Sunday's game against Kansas City after suffering a foot injury, but he will see the field as New Orleans looks to avoid an 0-3 start:

Colston caught four passes for 71 yards in the Saints' opening loss to Washington and three more passes for 49 yards in last Sunday's loss at Carolina. The 6-4, 225-pound Hofstra product does not have a touchdown reception yet this season.

New Orleans will be facing a Chiefs pass defense that has struggled in losses to Atlanta and Buffalo this season. The Falcons' Matt Ryan threw for 299 yards and three touchdowns on just over 74 percent passing, while the Bills' Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 178 yards and two scores on just 10 completions.
