Friday update — Hill got in two full practices and has been removed from the injury report. The Saints will be without Michael Thomas and Jarvis Landry, while Chris Olave is questionable. We could see a lot of Hill once again this week.

Thursday update — Hill returned to practice in full on Thursday and should be good to go for Week 6 vs. the Bengals.

Could New Orleans Saints tight end Taysom Hill be in jeopardy of missing Sunday’s tilt against the Cincinnati Bengals?

Fresh off his four-touchdown performance against the Seahawks on Sunday, Hill was limited in practice on Wednesday, according to Mike Triplett.

While some might think he had a back injury after carrying the Saints to a 39-32 over the Seahawks in Week 5, Hill is dealing with a ribs injury.

Fantasy football implications

Don’t worry, fantasy football managers. Your FAAB dollars haven’t been lit on fire just yet. It’s encouraging that Hill is practicing, even if it’s in a limited fashion. That’s a good sign he’ll suit up Sunday.

If he does miss the game then it could be a big day for running back Alvin Kamara, who has lost plenty of touchdown opportunities to Hill. Unfortunately, if he does miss the game, it won’t clear up the tight-end-by-committee in the Big Easy. Adam Trautman and Juwan Johnson are still splitting snaps, while Hill — listed as a tight end — is a jack-of-all-trades who takes opportunities from every offensive player on the Saints.
