The New Orleans Saints could certainly use all hands on deck given the suspensions of players and the penchant for quarterback Drew Brees to spread the ball around to his offensive targets. So it was good news that wide receiver Marques Colston returned to practice Thursday after suffering a left foot injury and missing Wednesday's session.
Colston, however, was limited on Thursday, as was Saints defensive back Jabari Greer.

Colston was held out of Wednesday's practice apparently as a precaution. He's expected to play Sunday when the Saints host Washington. Colston caught 80 passes for 1,143 yards and eight touchdowns for New Orleans in 2011. He also caught 16 balls for 256 in two postseason games.
