Taysom Hill is feared to have suffered a torn tendon in his middle finger that may necessitate surgery at some point, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, with more tests forthcoming.

The injury Hill is feared to have suffered, known as mallet finger, is part of what Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson suffered in Seattle’s Thursday night game against the Rams in Week 5, sending him to a month-long repair, recovery and rehab process.

Hill made the start for New Orleans in Thursday’s 27-17 loss to the Cowboys, suffering the injury in the opening half.
