SALT LAKE CITY – The New Orleans Saints could potentially make a change at quarterback, which would include former BYU QB Taysom Hill.

Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints are currently 5-6 and have lost their last four games. Jameis Winston suffered a season ending injury on October 31 and was replaced by Trevor Siemian.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Taysom Hill is taking first-team reps in practice this week with Siemian working with the second team.

In five games, Siemian completed 99 of his 173 pass attempts for 1,083 yards, nine touchdowns and three interceptions. Hill has played multiple positions this season. He has thrown eight passes and completed seven of them for 56 yards and one interception.

The Saints will face the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday Night Football on FOX and the NFL Network.
