“It was swelling for about one day,” said Colston, who first missed practice on Aug. 5. “Now it’s just a matter of finding the cause of the irritation and treating the cause.”

“Some of these guys that have had off-season surgeries, we are trying to be smart with,” Saints coach Sean Payton said. “The swelling has gone down and we are being cautious with a month still to go.”

Jeff Duncan thinks he's getting a "veteran's vacation" and just being allowed to sit out of these drills, but I'm concerned there might be more to it. Is it possible that Colston is a hold out? He is in the last year of his deal.

Man I really hope Colston has a good season. I could see him snag 90 balls for 1200yds and 10tds if he just can stay healthy.
