Taysom Hill said Tuesday he's been dealing with a partial tear of the plantar fascia, which resulted in him being active but a nonparticipant in the last two games. The Saints quarterback said he "felt pretty good" this week and that the last couple days have been "really encouraging."
The Saints have reportedly been giving Hill the first-team quarterback reps in practice this week, so HC Sean Payton seems as if he is preparing him to start Thursday if he's good to go. "I think so," Hill said when asked if he'll be ready to play Thursday. "That's kind of the question mark. It's hard to simulate a game in practice. The last couple weeks I would have been limited if I had to go in and play," the story said.
