New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston was taken to the locker room with a possible concussion in the third quarter of New Orleans' Week 12 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

UPDATE: November 25 at 6:42 p.m. ET by Rick Weiner

According to the team's official Twitter account, Colston is OK and will return to the game:

Jeff Duncan of the Times-Picayune reported the news via Twitter:

"Tough" is right on the money to describe Colston, who went up in traffic to get a pass thrown a bit high by quarterback Drew Brees when he was hit low.

The ball tipped off of his fingers and Colston and flipped over, landing awkwardly on his head. Meanwhile, the ball fell into the waiting hands of 49ers safety Donte Whitner, who scampered 42 yards for the touchdown to give San Francisco a 28-14 lead.

Colston got up and walked off of the field under his own power, but headed straight to the locker room, leaving his return to the game questionable.

Before the scary incident, Colston had caught three passes for 28 yards and a 10-yard touchdown in the second quarter, one that not only gave the Saints a 14-7 lead but also put Colston ahead of former Saints running back Deuce McAllister for the most career touchdowns in team history:
