The Saints are in the midst of a battle with Washington and they’ve been dealt some bad news so far. Taysom Hill was involved in a helmet-to-helmet hit during the second quarter and it looked pretty bad. William Jackson had the hit on Hill, which resulted in a flag for the Saints.

It also led to a cart coming out for Hill. While Hill reportedly was able to hop onto the cart himself, the hit didn’t look good and any time a cart comes out, it’s not good news.

As Jeff Duncan tweeted below, Jackson should expect a fine for this hit on the Saints offensive weapon.

Hill might not have won the quarterback job in New Orleans but this team still needs him desperately. He’s one of the team’s most ferocious players on offense because of how much he can do when the ball is in his hands.

Sean Payton loves getting Hill into the game whether it’s as a quarterback, running back, wide receiver, or tight end. He’s so elusive and hopefully, the offensive weapon is able to bounce back from what looked like a nasty hit.

As Katherine Terrell’s tweet above indicates, the Saints are also currently without Deonte Harris. Their offense is already thin at wide receiver so losing both Harris and Hill would be deadly for this group.

Taysom Hill had to leave the game after a helmet-to-helmet hit.

While it was good news that Hill was able to get up and hop onto the cart on his own, you never want to see a player exit a game like that. Here’s to hoping that Hill is okay.
