- The Washington Times - Sunday, November 11, 2018

Although Dez Bryant’s 2018 season ended before he got into a game for his new team, the wide receiver already has made an impact on his New Orleans Saints teammates.

Running back Mark Ingram “threw up the X” after scoring this touchdown in Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals, mimicking Bryant’s usual touchdown celebration.

Ingram pulled off a spin move at the 4-yard line to get by two defenders and score.



ESPN’s Dianna Russini reported before the game that Ingram and wide receiver Michael Thomas were planning to “throw up the X” if they got into the end zone, honoring Bryant.

Alvin Kamara did the same thing when he scored later.

Bryant tore his Achilles in his second practice as a Saint and was placed on injured reserve just days after finally signing with a new team.
