Rookie Ian Book is set to leave as quarterback for the New Orleans Saints on Monday due to further Covid-19 issues for the franchise.

Several reports Thursday claimed that last week holder Taysom Hill had been added to the NFL’s Covid-19 / Reserve list, joining Trevor Siemian.

With Jameis Winston out for the remainder of the season with a serious knee injury, that leaves the former Notre Dame Book holder lined up for a start in only his second game on the active roster.

Book’s first regular season opponents will be the Miami Dolphins in what is a huge match for the Saints as they attempt to prevail in the post-season.

New Orleans enters week 16 backed by a 9-0 win from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but also knowing that a mistake against the Dolphins could easily end their hopes of reaching the playoffs.

They are currently ninth in the NFC, but are on par with a 7-7 record with the Minnesota Vikings, who hold seventh and last place in the playoffs, and the Philadelphia Eagles.

Book was picked on the fourth round by Notre Dame in the 2021 NFL Draft, but was buried in the Saints depth chart for most of the season.

He played 45 games during an impressive college career, throwing 72 touchdowns and just 20 interceptions with a pass completion rate of 63.8%.
