Colts tight end Kylen Granson has waited years for his first NFL touchdown. After he finally got one Sunday against the Texans, he celebrated with a fun photo shoot that’s getting lots of attention on social media.
Granson didn’t get to celebrate on field because it wasn’t ruled a touchdown until after review. On Instagram, he posted a series of photos of him cradling a football wrapped in a towel. His girlfriend is also in the photos admiring their newborn pigskin.
"After 3yrs of trying… it’s finally here," Granson joked on Instagram.
His teammates – quarterback Anthony Richardson, tight ends Drew Ogletree and Mo Alie-Cox and safety Julian Blackmon – chimed in online to give Granson a hard time.
"Come on man," Richardson said with a crying emoji.
"Log off the internet man," Alie-Cox commented with a laughing emoji.
The Colts beat the Texans 31-20 Sunday after Richardson left the game in the first quarter with a concussion. Backup Gardner Minshew finished Sunday's game and will start next week if Richardson hasn’t cleared concussion protocol in time.
