Sean Payton doesn't expect Mark Ingram's return to impact Taysom Hill's role

The New Orleans Saints expanded do-it-all backup quarterback Taysom Hill's role on offense each of the past two games, but with running back Mark Ingram returning from suspension this week, it's fair to wonder if Hill will continue to have such a significant role.

Hill, the third-string quarterback and special teams dynamo, was the second leading rusher behind Alvin Kamara for the Saints in wins over the Atlanta Falcons and New York Giants, but Ingram should theoretically take touches from Kamara, Hill and others.

However, when asked on Friday, coach Sean Payton said he "doesn't think" Ingram's return will impact Hill's role on offense.

"We try to, each week, look at different ways that he can help us," Payton said of Hill. "I don't see it being impacted there."

Hill played five snaps in Week 3, which was more than the four played by reserve running backs Mike Gillislee and Jonathan Williams. On Hill's five snaps, he had three carries for 39 yards, including a 35-yard run, and he ran a route and blocked on the other two plays.

In Week 4, Hill's role increased to 15 snaps, again more than the backup running backs as Gillislee played five and Dwayne Washington played two. Hill had four carries for 28 yards, including a 19-yarder. He also threw a pass on offense, though it was incomplete, and he caught a pass, though the screen lost 4 yards. He also did some blocking.

Ingram “He’s a beast man”. First time a running back said that about a QB ever
