The 26-year-old had a career season in 2020 filling in for Saquon Barkley, finishing with 796 yards from scrimmage and six touchdowns. In his previous 38 games for the Giants, Gallman collected 1,146 yards and five touchdowns, and he’ll continue to profile as more of a backup.

Cincinnati Bengals rookie defensive end Joseph Ossai will undergo knee surgery to repair a meniscus injury, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. The surgery is likely season-ending.

The Bengals are signing veteran edge-rusher Noah Spence as a replacement.

The loss of Ossai, a third-round pick, is unfortunate for Cincinnati as he was a breakout star during training camp and in the team's first preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Ossai began his preseason debut by sacking Tom Brady. He was a solid presence for the Bengals, who had high hopes for him in 2021.

The 21-year-old spent his entire college career at Texas, where he recorded 11.5 sacks, two interceptions, five forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, three pass breakups, 165 tackles and 30 tackles for a loss in 29 games.

As for Spence, he has been in the NFL for four seasons, playing three of those with the Buccaneers before spending the 2019 campaign with the Washington Football Team. He signed with the New Orleans Saints in 2020 but missed the entire season with a torn ACL.

The 27-year-old re-signed with the Saints this summer but was cut after appearing in their first preseason game.

In 41 career games, Spence has 7.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, two pass breakups, 37 tackles, three tackles for a loss and 16 quarterback hits.

Le’Veon Bell has chance to play for Ravens in Week 1

  Le’Veon Bell has chance to play for Ravens in Week 1 Even if Bell does play, he would likely do so in a very limited role. That said, the Ravens are desperate for running back help after losing both J.K. Dobbins and Justice Hill to season-ending injuries. Bell was a star with the Steelers from 2013-2017. But then he sat out the 2018 season due to a contract dispute and signed with the Jets the following year. Bell spent a disappointing season with the Jets and was dropped by them after two games last season. He signed with the Chiefs but had a limited role that left him disappointed.
