Saints quarterback Taysom Hill is reportedly going to keep playing through a right middle finger injury.

Hill hurt his finger against the Cowboys on Thursday night and word on Friday was that he tore a tendon in the finger. That report indicated that Hill may have surgery on the finger, but it looks like that won’t be happening.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that doctors have determined the mallet finger injury does not need to be treated surgically. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson did have surgery after suffering the same injury, but the report indicates Hill’s injury is less severe and Wilson also suffered other injuries to his finger.

Hill made his first start of the season at quarterback in the 27-17 loss to the Cowboys. He was 19-of-41 for 264 yards, two touchdowns, and four interceptions through the air while rushing 11 times for 101 yards. The Saints will be at the Jets in Week 14.

  1. Deshaun price gone up in recent weeks. A number of teams will need new QB, like Saints, Giants, Panthers as some.

  2. Cut the guy a break. Once his finger heals, Taysom may only throw three INT’s per game instead of four.

  3. I’m surprised after this much time in the Saints system and after signing a big extension he looked like he had no idea what he was doing, panicked in the face of pressure and threw the ball incredibly inaccurately.

  4. Not a big Saints fan, but all hill really needs is more time under Sean Peytons tutelage. He can run, and he CAN pass, he just needs more time under center. I think eventually he’ll be alright.🤷🏼‍♂️

    Watson price hasnt changed. He still has a no trade clause as well as allegations that even if everything is resolved before next season still likely keeps him out at least 4 games.

    Hill is 31 years old right now and will be 32 before next season, theres no time for “eventually”.

  7. The Frankenstein Experiment should be OVER! Taysom Hill is a great gadget H-back, but a HORRENDOUS, DISASTROUS quarterback! At last! The Taysom Cult finally saw EVIDENCE of what the rest of us have been saying: He is NOT an NFL QB! And a former NFL LSuper Bowl QB uttered the same words last night. The cult nailed Jameis Winston to the cross over the slightest overthrow. If I was Jameis, there is NO WAY IN HELL that I would re-sign with the Saints as long as Taysom Hill is on the roster vying to be what he is NOT: an NFL QB. What an INSULT! Taysom had 4 INTs and it could have easily been 8! But he not only threw behind the receiver but behind the defenders too! He made Nathan Peterman look like the second coming of Joe Montana! That trainwreck was DEVASTATING to watch! I’ve already turned my attention to the 2022 NFL Draft. With Taysom at QB, they’re headed for a Top 5 pick. My heart goes out to the defense. Those guys put them in position to win and Taysom pissed in the bed on national TV! Even the makeship offensive line did a nice job. They gave him enough time to complete passes but he has ZERO accuracy, not even on interceptions! END THIS MADNESS!!! Taysom Hill is NOT a QB! They might as well have an offensive lineman passing. He’d probably be more accurate. The Saints have to FINALLY admit what the world knows–Taysom is a DISASTER under center!

    Why? Those teams can use those draft picks they would’ve traded away for Watson and get a QB in the next draft.

  9. Are ANY of you aware that Taysom Hill suffered a nasty injury to the middle finger of his THROWING hand last night.

  10. He’s not an NFL QB,he’s not accurate enough! He throws the ball where the player is,has no feel for putting the ball in front and hitting the player in stride! Looks just like Tannehill in Miami. He got our recievers destroyed doing that!

  11. This guy is a throwback to the 1950’s when a fullback would play quarterback. He’s tough as hell and he’s going to ge it done as the starter for the Saints. There is no rule that you have to be a traditional pocket passer to win a super bowl. Hopefully the Giants are smart enough to trade for this guy.
