NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton named Trevor Siemian the team’s starting quarterback for Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Here is Payton after practice Friday:

In relief of an injured Jameis Winston last week, Siemian was 16 for 19 passing with 159 yards and 1 touchdown in the team’s 36-27 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Payton says that quarterback Taysom Hill will also see some playing time on Sunday as he makes his way back from a concussion suffered in the team’s win over Washington.
