New Orleans Saints quarterback Taysom Hill needs surgery to repair the Lisfranc injury he sustained in Sunday's season finale against the Atlanta Falcons.

Saints head coach Sean Payton didn't give a timeline for recovery, however reports put Hill out of action for about six months.

Hill was injured during the second quarter after being tackled on a running play. Hill completed 7 of 9 passes for 107 yards and one touchdown and rushed five times for 18 yards before departing in the 30-20 win over Atlanta.

For the season, Hill passed for 978 yards, four touchdowns and five interceptions. He rushed for 374 yards and five scores.

The 31-year-old Hill started five games this season for the Saints (9-8), who did not qualify for the playoffs despite Sunday's victory.

He was one of four starting quarterbacks New Orleans utilized this season.

Jameis Winston was the starter before tearing the ACL and MCL in his left knee in the Saints' seventh game of the campaign. Trevor Siemian started four games and Ian Book received one start.

Siemian replaced Hill against Atlanta and went 9 of 15 for 71 yards and two touchdowns.
