Taysom Hill, TE (NO)

Long recovery on tap

Hill is expected to need six -to-nine months of recovery following surgery to repair a Lisfranc injury in his left foot, Jeff Duncan of NOLA.com reports.

It's important to note the Saints have not officially announced a recovery timeline, but given the nature of previous Lisfranc injuries, the aforementioned timeframe is a fair guess. Hill will undergo two separate surgeries this offseason in order to repair the injury with the latter likely occurring sometime after the 2022 NFL Draft. The 31-year-old dual-threat quarterback did start the year behind Jameis Winston, but after the 2015 No. 1 overall pick tore his ACL in Week 8, Hill eventually took over as the starter. Provided the Saints bring back Winston, who is an unrestricted free agent this offseason, expect the duo to once again compete for the starting honors to begin the 2022 season.
