Things started off differently James Winston and the New Orleans Saints In the Week 5 game with the Washington Football team on Sunday. Winston threw an interception to start the game, then an impressive 72-yard touchdown, then a confused cough, and you just had to know that head coach Sean Payton would probably start working on the quarterback and assistant quarterback. Tsum Hill Just a little more. Unfortunately, Hill was the victim of an illegal helmet-to-helmet kick from the back corner William Jackson The third that led to Hill being moved to the locker room.

He is now excluded from the game.

Jackson has been reported for his unsportsmanlike behavior, and Hill was seen riding the buggy under his own power, which at least looks like some good sign going forward, but his exclusion could mean he’s in the league’s concussion protocol. The Saints have a goodbye in week six, which gives Hill two weeks to heal before facing the Seattle Seahawks on October 25.

That leaves Winston to bear the full burden of the remainder of the fight against Washington, in the absence of a large portion of Payton’s tailor-made offensive play rules for Hill, who finished the day with an 11-yard reception.
