Possible injury update explored

Many observers reacted to Taysom Hill’s hard hit on social media, with some shocked at the crowd for booing when a penalty was awarded.

Others suggested William Jackson might be in trouble following the collision.

A doctor on Twitter thought that as well as concussion, Hill may have suffered a sprain to ligaments in his neck.

Former quarterback Drew Brees said he planned to visit and check on Hill, explaining how difficult it is to watch ex-teammates get hurt.

New Orleans Saints went on to win the game 33-22 while, despite all the worries, one fan claimed to have spotted Hill in good spirits after returning from the hospital.
