Marques Colston missed practice on Wednesday with a sore foot but is expected to play Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston has been bothered with a sore foot, but he is expected to practice tomorrow and play against the Washington Redskins on Sunday, via Twitter. Not much else is known about the injury other than it has held him out of practice today, but it appears that it shouldn't be of any concern to fantasy owners.

Fantasy Implications: Colston is one of the most consistent and reliable wide receivers in the game, catching between 70 and 98 passes and over 1,000 yards in each of his six seasons, with the exception of his injury-plagued 2008 campaign. He was out of two games last year but still managed 80 catches for 1,143 yards and 8 touchdowns and he is reliable as a WR2 option in fantasy, ranking 14th in SBNation's Week One WR rankings.
