  • Bengals' Joseph Ossai: Likely out until training camp

    Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said Tuesday that Ossai had another procedure done on his knee "to help the process" and will be sidelined for "a couple more weeks," Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

    Ossai had surgery on his meniscus during training camp and was sidelined for his entire rookie season. It's concerning that the knee is still causing the 2021 third-round pick issues, but his coach remained optimistic by saying, "he's certainly on track to be able to play in training camp and be able to do some good things for us."

    Ossai had surgery on his meniscus during training camp and as expected will be placed on injured reserve ahead of the 2021 season. The rookie third-round pick had a promising showing in his lone preseason contest, but he will have to shift his focus to rehabbing for 2022.

  • Bengals' Joseph Ossai: Will have surgery this week

    Ossai is slated to have knee surgery this week for a meniscus injury that is feared to be season-ending, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    The Bengals drafted Ossai in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft, and he had a promising start to his NFL career with five quarterback pressures and one sack in his lone preseason contest. Amani Bledsoe will have a shot for a bigger role this year if the rookie is indeed done for the season.

    The rookie edge rusher was making an impact before he got hurt, sacking Tom Brady to end Tampa Bay's first possession of the night and adding another QB hit later in the game. As yet, there's been no indication of how serious Ossai's injury is.

  • Bengals' Joseph Ossai: Adds edge help for Cincinnati

    The Bengals selected Ossai in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft, 69th overall.

    Carl Lawson's departure in free agency made edge a must for the Bengals, and Ossai fills that need. Ossai is an explosive athlete, turning in a 4.62 in the 40-yard dash and a 41.5-inch vertical at the Texas pro day. On the field, Ossai created havoc in the Longhorn defense with 30.5 tackles for loss and 11.0 sacks in three seasons. He led the Big 12 in tackles for loss as a junior and he projects to be an instant impact player in Cincinnati.
