Report: Taysom Hill feared to have suffered torn tendon in finger, may require surgery

New Orleans Saints quarterback Taysom Hill is feared to have suffered a torn tendon in his finger during a loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday night.

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport broke the news via twitter.

Rapoport reports Hill will likely need surgery at some point to fix the injury.

Hill was injured in the first quarter after hitting his hand on a Cowboys defender while trying to pass. He wore a splint on the injured finger and finished the game 19-41 passing for 264 yards with 2 touchdowns and 4 interceptions.

The Cowboys beat the Saints 27-17. The loss dropped the Black & Gold to 5-7 overall.

The defeat was the fifth consecutive for New Orleans, and is the first 5-game losing streak of head coach Sean Payton’s career.

Hill made his first start at quarterback against Dallas after dealing with concussion and foot injuries in November.

The Saints travel to New York to face the Jets on Sunday, December 12.

No official word from the Saints yet on Tayson Hill’s injury but Payton is expected to meet the media via conference call sometime on Friday.

Trevor Siemian, who started four games earlier this season and rookie Ian Book are the other quarterbacks on the Saints roster. Siemian went 0-4 as the starter and Book has been inactive for most games this season.
