QB - NO
Week 17 Outlook
Saints QB Taysom Hill (knee) is inactive and will not play in Sunday’s Divisional Round game against the Buccaneers.
As expected, Hill will not play in Sunday’s playoff game against the Buccaneers. The Saints will also be without RB Latavius Murray (quad). This bodes well for RB Alvin Kamara, who should see all the goal-line work for the Saints on Sunday. Jameis Winston will handle backup QB duties while Hill is sidelined.
Saints QB Taysom Hill (knee) is not likely to play Sunday vs. the Buccaneers.
Hill was only able to log a limited practice on Friday this week and it’s looking like he’s unlikely to suit up against the Buccaneers for the divisional round game. Things can change on game day leading up to kickoff however, so check back to see if the Saints’ Swiss Army knife is able to play on Sunday. Jameis Winston is the likely backup should Hill ultimately be ruled out.
Taysom Hill (knee) returned to practice on Friday and is officially listed as "questionable" for Sunday against the Bucs.
Hill didn't practice on either Wednesday or Thursday, so his return today gives him a good shot at suiting up for this one. Of course, Drew Brees will simply handle all the quarterback reps if Hill can't go.
Taysom Hill (knee) remained sidelined during Thursday's practice.
Hill didn't practice on Wednesday either, so there's a real chance that he won't suit up in the Divisional Round against Tampa Bay. Of course, even a "limited" practice on Friday will give him a shot at playing. We know that coach Sean Payton would be thrilled to have him.
Taysom Hill logged four carries for 15 yards on the ground while hauling in both of his two targets for five yards. He was sacked on his only pass attempt and also lost a fumble.
Hill wasn't used too often in this matchup. Outside of the sack he took, he had a deep shot that was incomplete and washed out on a penalty. He had a couple of looks near the goal line, one of which he took down to the one-yard line. Hill remains pretty touchdown-dependent while Dres Brees starts under center, which makes him a risky start in all formats.
