·1-min read

Taysom Hill left the field on a cart on Sunday after a helmet-to-helmet blow against the Washington Football Team. 

The New Orleans Saints gadget player suffered the injury when he laid out for a pass from quarterback Jameis Winston in the second quarter. As he fell to the ground while attempting to corral the overthrown pass, Washington cornerback William Jackson III lowered his head and dove into Hill, making helmet-to-helmet contact.

Jackson was flagged for unnecessary roughness. The Saints sent out a medical cart.

Hill was able to sit up on his own and was speaking on the cart as he left the field. The Saints later ruled him out with a concussion

New Orleans rallied with a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns to secure a 33-22 win.
