It has been widely assumed that Jameis Winston will start at quarterback for the New Orleans Saints now that Drew Brees is expected to miss several weeks, but it sounds like the team is planning to go in a different direction.

Taysom Hill has been getting the starter reps in practice for the Saints this week, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports. While it’s possible both he and Winston could see snaps against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, signs are pointing toward Hill starting.

Winston took over for Brees last week after the 41-year-old left the game with a rib injury. He completed 6-of-10 passes for 60 yards.

Hill is used in different offensive packages for the Saints even when Brees is healthy. He’s more of a combination between a quarterback, fullback and tight end, and Sean Payton likes to line him up in different spots and use him as a change-of-pace option. It’s possible Payton could still do that even if Hill is technically named the Week 11 starter.

The Saints signed Hill to a lucrative extension even after they brought in Winston last offseason, which shows they envision him as part of their future. There has been talk that he could be the starter when Brees retires, so it would make sense for Payton to give him the job while Brees is out.

Brees is dealing with multiple injuries that sound quite serious. He is expected to miss several games.
