SALT LAKE CITY – The New Orleans Saints activated former BYU quarterback Taysom Hill and placed former Utah safety Marcus Williams on the team’s COVID-19/Reserve list.

The transactions took place on Wednesday, December 29.

Hill was added to the list on December 23 and missed New Orleans’ Week 16 20-3 loss to the Miami Dolphins.

Williams was placed on the Saints’ COVID-19/Reserve list in between Weeks 16-17.

Per agreed-upon NFL-NFLPA policy, clubs are not permitted to comment on a player’s medical status other than referring to roster status. Being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list is for a player who either tests positive for COVID-19 or who has been in close contact with an infected person or persons.

Hill has started that last three games for New Orleans and has led the Saints to a 2-1 record in those games.

This season, Hill has thrown for 649 yards, two touchdowns, and five interceptions with a 55.7 percent completion rate in nine games played.

Williams has recorded 72 total tackles, 51 solo tackles, one forced fumble, two interceptions, and eight pass breakups in 2021.

The Saints currently own a 7-8 record and sit in second place in the NFC South.

New Orleans’ next game is against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, January 2 at 2:25 p.m. (MDT) on FOX.
