08:02 AM ET 12.31 | On Tuesday, Saints receiver Marques Colston had arthroscopic surgery, and he may play on Sunday. [Coach] Sean Payton said the team's No. 1 passing target has not been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "I don't want to diminish the fact that he had this scope, but they just cleaned up some loose bodies," Payton explained. "It was one of those decisions we made knowing that it wasn't going to be significant." ... Payton said that Colston suffered the injury during Monday night's victory at Atlanta, though Colston was able to play the entire game through the pain. This is a new injury for Colston, who has dealt with nagging left knee issues throughout his career.

"but they just cleaned up some loose bodies"

I can think of some teams that need to clean up some loose bodies.

The Saints have scored fewer points this year than the Falcons. Who woulda thunk it?

I think I'll watch North Dallas Forty this morning. I do like a player who plays through the pain.

That's ridiculous if he does play.
