UPDATE: As expected, Taysom Hill has been ruled out with a concussion.

The New Orleans Saints utility man Taysom Hill took a hard hit to the head as a receiver and had to be carted off. It would appear he will be checked for a concussion.

Hill has been providing a good offensive spark for the Saints this season, but this hit will likely keep him out for the rest of this game at least. There will be a hefty fine, as the hit was flagged as it should have been.

Jameis Winston has turned the ball over twice in this game, but also hit Deonte Harris for a 72-yard touchdown, while Alvin Kamara ran for a 24-yard touchdown. Winston will need to keep from turning the ball over with the score 13-13 in the second quarter.
