New Orleans Saints defensive end Noah Spence sustained a torn ACL while training, ESPN's Mike Triplett reports, citing a source.

The Saints canceled their offseason program in April due to the coronavirus pandemic, meaning Spence's reported injury took place while he was training away from the team.

As a result, New Orleans has placed the 26-year-old on the reserve/non-football injury list, according to Triplett. The Saints signed linebacker Anthony Chickillo on Tuesday to make up for the loss, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Spence signed a one-year contract worth $910,000 with the Saints in March.
