Colston will need his minutes monitored throughout the pre-season

Posted: Updated:
Metairie, La - Wide receiver Marques Colston and Drew Brees have been together since Colston was drafted in the seventh round out of Hofstra in 2006.. And all Colston has done since is rewrite the Saints receiving record books. But now Colston's time on the field in pre-season must be monitored closely.

Quarterback Drew Brees is well aware of all the reasons why.  "He's such a big, physical guy and, you know, a lot of his catches are taking place between the numbers and there's big guys in there so he's taking a lot of shots.  He goes through a lot of punishment throughout the season, so by the end of the season I know he's hurtin' pretty good.  So to have an off-season where he can get through it and be healthy at this time of year, you know he's had to miss a few of these OTA-mini camp sessions due to different surgeries and just try to get nursed back to health, it's nice to have him be healthy."

Colston has said he's changed his off-season workouts and understands how his playing time through the pre-season needs to be monitored so he can have the most productive regular season possible.
