New Orleans Saints 2018 season recap: Ted Ginn Jr. 

Ginn was a spark right out of the gates for the Saints

A knee injury suffered in Week 4 put New Orleans Saints wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr.  on Injured Reserved Week 7 through Week 15, before returning to action Dec. 23 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Through five games, Ginn caught 17 passes for 209 yards and two touchdowns, averaging 12 yards per catch. The Saints also used Ginn in the run game a few times, rushing for 26 yards on three attempts.

BEST GAME: Ginn was a spark right out of the gates for the Saints, with his best game coming in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Quarterback Drew Brees targeted Ginn six times, with Ginn catching five of those for 68 yards and one touchdown. Ginn averaged 13.60 yards per reception and rushed once for five yards. Despite losing to the Buccaneers 48-40, Ginn's strong performance gave the Saints offense another offensive weapon to use moving forward.

BEST QUOTE: "It was tough, not being out there to fight with your brothers," Ginn said upon returning from IR. "I watched it. I enjoyed (seeing the team win), but I didn't enjoy (not being able to contribute). It shows a lot about what this game means to me and my family, what brotherhood stands for. Just eager to get back and help my team."
