Saints Future Looks Murkier
New Orleans Saints player Taysom Hill suffered a Lisfranc injury to his foot early on during the must-win game against the Atlanta Falcons this past Sunday.
After a year of displacement from their homes due to a hurricane, coaches and staff out with Covid-19, eight overtime games, and a regular season which saw games started by four different quarterbacks, the injury Sunday was just another misfortune added to the team's list.
Return to play for a sprain ranges from 2 to 4 weeks, while return to play from an injury requiring surgery ranges 6 to 9 months.
Unfortunately, news broke on Monday that Hill requires "multiple surgeries": open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) followed by hardware removal at a later date to facilitate recovery.
