METAIRIE, La. (AP) — A person familiar with the situation says Saints receiver Marques Colston could miss about four weeks with a broken collar bone.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Saints have declined to release specifics of the injury.
Saints coach Sean Payton on Friday acknowledged that Colston was banged up in the final seconds of New Orleans 42-34 loss at Green Bay on Thursday night. However, Payton says he’s not providing details until the Saints’ next injury report is due on Wednesday.
Colston’s injury raises the prospect that New Orleans could be without two key receivers against Chicago on Sept. 18. Lance Moore did not play against Green Bay because of a sore right groin and his status for the Bears game is unclear.
