Source — Taysom Hill, Not Jameis Winston, To Start At QB For New Orleans Saints

Taysom Hill will start at quarterback for the New Orleans Saints on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Hill took all the starter reps at practice this week, the source said. Jameis Winston will be the backup.

Winston played most of the second half in New Orleans’ 27-13 win over the San Francisco 49ers after Brees was injured Sunday.

Hill, who is used in an occasional change-of-pace role for the Saints as a run-heavy quarterback even when Brees is healthy, played seven snaps at QB during the second half.

Brees has been diagnosed with a collapsed lung and a total of five fractured ribs on both sides of his body, a source told ESPN’s Ed Werder on Wednesday.
