METAIRIE, La. -- New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston had an arthroscopic procedure on his knee Tuesday and has not practiced this week, coach Sean Payton said Thursday.

He's listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

Colston played in Monday night's victory over the Atlanta Falcons. Payton says Colston emerged from the game with soreness and characterized the procedure as a "clean up" and relatively minor.

The Saints moved receiver Adrian Arrington from their practice squad to the active roster Thursday. Arrington caught two touchdown passes during the preseason.

In other moves, the Saints placed kick returner Courtney Roby on injured reserve, officially ending his season three weeks after he suffering a concussion during a game against the St. Louis Rams.

Roby has missed the past two games, although Payton said last week that he had been cleared to play again. Roby had averaged 23.8 yards on 33 kickoff returns this season, with a long return of 39 yards.

Running back Pierre Thomas has handled kickoff returns in Roby's absence, averaging 22 yards on seven returns.
