SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The New Orleans Saints listed former BYU quarterback Taysom Hill as “Questionable” with a knee injury for the upcoming NFC Divisional Round game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Saints are scheduled to host the Buccaneers on Sunday, January 17.

On Friday, January 15, Hill was one of two New Orleans players with their game status in doubt. In addition to Hill, Saints running back Latavius Murray was listed as questionable.

According to the game’s injury report, Hill did not participate in the Saints’ practices on January 13 or 14. He was limited in Friday’s practice.

As the starting quarterback, Hill led New Orleans to a 3-1 record.

This season, Hill has thrown for 928 yards, four touchdowns, and two interceptions with a 72.7 completion rate.

In addition to passing, Hill has 87 carries for 457 yards and eight touchdowns.
