Report: Bengals DE Joseph Ossai facing knee surgery

Cincinnati Bengals rookie defensive end Joseph Ossai will have knee surgery this week to repair a torn meniscus, NFL Network reported Sunday.

The injury is feared to be season-ending, per the report. The Bengals signed veteran edge rusher Noah Spence on Sunday to fill the void.

It wasn’t immediately clear when Ossai, 21, injured his knee.

The third-round draft pick from the University of Texas left the Aug. 14 preseason opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a reported wrist injury after sacking Tom Brady, registering five quarterback pressures and collecting three tackles.

Spence, 27, last played for Washington in 2019, appearing in seven games.

The 2016 second-rounder has 7.5 sacks, 37 tackles and four forced fumbles in 41 games (six starts) with the Buccaneers and Washington.
