Josh Hill played the most snaps at tight end for the Saints during the 2017 season and he did it with what sounds like quite a bothersome injury to one of his fingers.
According to multiple reports, Hill had surgery recently to repair a finger injury that he played through during both the regular season and playoffs. The finger was reportedly bent at a 90-degree angle, which may not qualify as an acute or obtuse injury but certainly seems like the sort of thing that would keep many non-NFL players from continuing in their jobs.
Hill, who has played for the Saints since 2013, had 16 catches for 125 yards and a touchdown in the regular season. He added six more catches for 103 yards and a touchdown in New Orleans’ two postseason outings.
