Taysom Hill going into Week 13’s match with Dallas Cowboys is being treated for an ankle problem, but now he has another and supposedly bigger problem to deal with in the future. NS New Orleans Saints‘The hybrid talent took up the starting midfield role for head coach Sean Payton on Thursday night, but had to leave the field in the first half for a medical evaluation after apparently injuring his pitcher him in a pass with a defender who is likely to be sacked. However, Hill returns to the game and complete playing 100% of attack snaps.

The 31-year-old is said to have torn a tendon in the middle finger of his throwing hand – known as the mallet finger – but will not require surgery, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, and Hill will try to play through the injury. For reference, it’s the same injury suffered earlier this season by Russell Wilson, who then underwent surgery before going missing from time to time and coming back Seattle Seahawks Football Team, but Wilson became a shell of his former self as he tried to regain his throwing ability.

According to Schefter, Hill’s injury is not as extensive as Wilson’s. Even so, it raises questions about how effective/ineffective Hill can be as a forward laner; and especially consider his struggles in that area when he was healthy.

Hill ended the loss to the Cowboys by launching four interceptions (three of the final seven minutes of regulation, including a pick-six for the defence. Carlos Watkins) and completed just 19 of his 41 pass attempts with a 44.2 passer rating. If he continues as a starter, this could be the kind of production Payton can look forward to, which once again spurs Trevor Siemian into the conversation to be able (and likely?) to regain the starting role. Siemian was finally given the nod after the Saints failed James Winston for the season with a torn ACL and MCL damage.

However, Siemian was 0-4 as the Saints’ starting QB led to a move to Hill, but also rookie midfielder Book of Ian, who has been inactive against the Cowboys and has yet to be successful this season. Currently reeling from a five-game losing streak and combining that with the news on the Hill leaves 5-7 Saints firmly pushed into a wall to go through.

With three splits to come in their last five, along with one with a surprisingly revived defense of Miami Dolphins, the wheels were starting to fall off in New Orleans, and Payton had to quickly figure out how to re-tighten the nuts.
