The Saints have placed backup quarterback Jameis Winston on the NFL’s reserve/COVID-19 list meaning he’ll be out for Sunday’s 3:25 p.m. matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Without Winston, the Saints will have quarterback Drew Brees, who will start Sunday’s contest after missing the last four games with rib fractures and a collapsed lung, and Taysom Hill who went 3-1 as a starter in Brees’ absence available for the game against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs high powered offense.

Hill, who normally receives snaps at various positions when Brees is on the field will likely see his playing time reduced Sunday as he will be the only other available QB for New Orleans since the Saints waived backup Trevor Siemian Saturday.
