TAMPA -- The best rookie in the league plays for the New Orleans Saints, and he showed it again Sunday.

Reggie Bush? Nope. Meet wide receiver Marques Colston, taken No.252 overall, from Division I-AA Hofstra. Colston caught 11 passes for 123 yards and a touchdown in a 31-14 victory over Tampa Bay.

Bush, meanwhile, spent most of the day picking the dirt out of his helmet, rushing for minus-5 yards on 11 carries against a defense that stacked the line of scrimmage. Bush did slightly better receiving, with four catches for 22 yards. He also had two punt returns for 20 yards.

"Of course I'm frustrated," Bush said. "I want to be out there running the ball, making plays and scoring touchdowns. But at the same time, I've got to be patient and let it come to me."
