Injury roundup: Saints' Hill, Murray unlikely to play against Buccaneers

The New Orleans Saints are unlikely to have quarterback Taysom Hill (knee) and running back Latavius Murray (quadricep) against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in today's Divisional Round playoff game, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Jane Slater. Both practiced only on Friday and were listed as questionable.

On the Bucs' side, Tampa Bay will decide on running back Ronald Jones (quad/finger) when they arrive at the stadium. He participated in the walk-through on Saturday which is a sign he's got a good shot to play, according to Rapoport. Officially, he's listed as questionable against New Orleans.

The second-seeded Saints play host to the fifth-seeded Bucs at 6:40 p.m. ET. The winner advances to take on Green Bay in next weekend's NFC Championship Game.

Here are the other injuries and roster moves we're monitoring Sunday:

  • Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle/hip), wideout Sammy Watkins (calf) and linebacker Willie Gay Jr. (ankle) are officially inactive vs. the Browns. Starting right tackle Mike Remmers is active despite being added to the injury report Sunday afternoon with an illness and being listed as questionable.
  • Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku (hamstring) and tackle Jack Conklin (hamstring/knee) should be able to play vs. the Chiefs, Rapoport reports, per a source. Both have since been declared as active.
