Saints' Taysom Hill expected to keep playing despite hand injury
NEW ORLEANS - Quarterback Taysom Hill suffered an injury to his throwing hand during Thursday night's loss to the Cowboys, though he is expected to continue playing.
NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported that Hill suffered a torn tendon in his middle finger, though the injury will not require surgery.
Saints’ doctors determined that QB Taysom Hill suffered a mallet finger injury Thursday, but it will not require surgery considering it is not as extensive as the one Russell Wilson suffered earlier this year, per source.

Hill, who got the start Thursday over struggling back-up Trevor Siemian, has already missed several games this season due to a concussion. Siemian went 0-4 as the Saints starter after taking over for an injured Jameis Winston in the team's Halloween win over the Buccaneers.
