The New Orleans Saints will reportedly be without a key contributor against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in this evening’s NFC Divisional Round playoff game.
New Orleans and Tampa Bay are playing for a spot in the NFC Championship Game. The winner of this evening’s game will travel to Green Bay to take on the No. 1-seeded Packers in the conference title game next weekend.
The Saints will be somewhat short-handed on Sunday night, though.
According to multiple reports, New Orleans is expected to be without do-it-all quarterback Taysom Hill on Sunday evening. Hill has been dealing with a knee injury suffered in last week’s win over the Chicago Bears.
“Hearing that Taysom Hill will not play today after suffering a knee injury in last week’s game. Would be a big loss for the Saints with all of the things he can do offensively..” Saints reporter Katherine Terrell tweeted.

Hill hasn’t played great as of late, but he’s still a solid weapon to use, especially with the season on the line.
New Orleans and Tampa Bay are scheduled to kick off at 6:40 p.m. E.T. on Sunday.
The game will air on FOX.
