One of the biggest question marks surrounding the 6-2 Ravens right now is the consistency of their offense. The play of the wide receivers, especially, has left a lot to be desired, and fans are hoping the Ravens will be able to find a solution to help get the offense humming like it was in 2019.

The front office has left no stone unturned in its search for receiving help, and the most notable addition this season has been former star wideout Dez Bryant. The longtime Cowboy was signed to the practice squad, and he made his debut in purple and black Sunday in Indianapolis.

Bryant played just two offensive snaps against the Colts, going without a target. But that doesn't mean he hasn't impressed in practice already in Baltimore. Just ask Mark Ingram.

"Just a dog, man. He's a dog," Ingram told The Rush when asked about how Bryant has looked. "He's the X-factor, you know what I mean? He's been looking good in practice, man. Moving good, running good, making catches. Looking forward to getting him going in the offense."

Ingram isn't sure how much work he wants to give away to Bryant just yet, joking that the Ravens need to keep running the ball at the goal line rather than just throw fades to Bryant. But it's clear that Ingram is excited to have Bryant in town, and sees him as the type of receiver the Ravens don't have elsewhere on their roster.

With the season halfway through, the Ravens still have time to fully acclimate Bryant into the offense. It won't surprise anybody - Ingram included - if he starts making more and more of an impact each week.
