Two nights ago, the New Orleans Saints succumbed to their fourth straight loss of the season. This time, the wreckers in chief were the Buffalo Bills, who humiliated the Saints with a scoreline of 31-6. Simply put, their on field luck has been at an all-time low. However, it looks like their fortune will take a return with key players set to return from injuries.

On Monday, the New Orleans Saints issued their Week 13 injury reports. The report included major updates on injured running backs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram, as well as a slew of other players.  As per the report, the New Orleans Saints have allowed Kamara to return to practice on a restricted basis. Meanwhile, teammate and legend Mark Ingram was able to completely take part in the practice session.

After the debacle against the Buffalo Bills, getting Kamara, Ingram, and potentially All-Pro right tackle Ryan Ramczyk back this week (all three are dealing with knee injuries) would be huge for the Saints offence. The icing on the cake, however, is the shift of Taysom Hill back to the QB position to replace the struggling Trevor Siemian.

As the Saints were getting battered by the Bills on Friday, the fans were clearly getting agitated. Come half time, the fans started yelling Taysom Hill’s name and wanted coach Payton to use him as a Quarter back. Unfortunately for the fans, the coach didn’t pay heed to their advice and went ahead with Trevor Siemian.

Post match, Sean Payton was quipped about why Hill hasn’t been playing as a QB. The coach answered in detail and revealed that his foot injury from week 5 still hasn’t healed and thus is not 100 percent. “He was still going through the week,” Payton said after the game. “We knew he wasn’t going to be able to play quarterback this week, but he’s listed as full relative to being up. That was his foot.”
