Taysom Hill, not Jameis Winston, to start at QB for New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints plan to start Taysom Hill at quarterback ahead of Jameis Winston on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Hill took all the starter reps at practice this week, according to the source. A source also told ESPN’s Dianna Russini that Winston will not be part of any offensive packages unless needed because of injury.

The move comes as a mild surprise, because Winston is more experienced and replaced Drew Brees during the second half of last Sunday’s 27-13 win over the San Francisco 49ers after Brees suffered cracked ribs and a punctured lung.
