Saints quarterback Taysom Hill was injured on the Saints’ 14th play Thursday night. He was hurt on an incomplete pass intended for Marquez Callaway with 4:27 remaining in the first quarter.

Replays showed Hill hit his hand on Dorance Armstrong‘s arm during his follow-through.

Hill entered the blue medical tent and exited with tape on the index and middle fingers of his right hand.

Trevor Siemian briefly warmed up, but Hill did not miss a play.

While Hill was getting his hand treated, the Cowboys were moving quickly down the field for the first points of the game. Michael Gallup scored on a 1-yard pass from Dak Prescott, making a spectacular catch in the corner of the end zone.

The highlight of the six-play, 80-yard drive was a 41-yard reception by Amari Cooper in his return from COVID-19. CeeDee Lamb had a 33-yard catch as the Cowboys’ top three receivers all got involved on the drive.

This is only the third game of the season that Prescott has had his top three wideouts in the same game.

  1. Hill is fun to watch and has a strong arm, but I don’t think he’s a long-term answer for the Saints. That being said he’s better than Treavor Simmeon. Too bad Winston went down because I think everyone was very curious to see if he was Saints answer.

  2. It’s ok, the refs sure are keeping a Dallas win secured. Bogus holding calls, non calls on blatant defensive PI infractions.

    They deserve that home field first round playoff loss more than anyone

    You are forgetting about the phantom “blind-side block” which changed the game. However, Taysom Hill is proving that the Saints have made one of the biggest mistakes in their history by signing him to that contract. He is a very good runner, but a horrible passer.

  4. Hmmm… a running back who throws 4 INTs in a game.

    Where have I seen this act before?

    Well, no. Taysom actually throws a terrible deep ball. He throws a terrible intermediate and short pass too, but the “strong arm” he might have is for lifting weights. His value is as a swiss army knife, at about $4-5 mil a season. He isn’t a top 30-40 player at any position. He isn’t a top 100 player at QB.

  6. 19-41, 264 yards (70 on a late garbage play), 4 int’s. The guy stinks. I stopped watching in the third. Up until that time, most of his passes were not accurate. Almost all of them actually.

  7. Great gimmick QB but a starter no way shame on the organization not having a young talented QB
    on the roster everyone knew Brees was retiring soon what the front office did was an perfect example of maleficence the GM should be fired .

  8. As a panthers fan I would take him any day over Cam Newton, but watching the game I do wonder how much of his poor throws were due to splint on middle throwing finger he injured during the game. Dropped passes didnt help him any either.

  9. We did draft a QB in the 4th round, Ian Book, for everyone thinking the Saints didn’t think about a QB. Did pretty well at ND. Maybe he is the guy next year, who knows. We all know it’s not Taysom, Saints fans included. BUT he is a tremendous asset to this team. Next year it will be Winston, Book or a free agent with Taysom being Taysom.
