The New Orleans Saints placed their Top 2 quarterbacks on the COVID-19 list on Thursday, pushing Ian Book into the starting role. This is obviously a downgrade for the offense as a whole. Taysom Hill’s ability as a rusher gives defense something to worry about other than Alvin Kamara and with that gone, they could be in trouble.
