Also, if you cut the drywall carefully and pry it out without breaking it you’ll be able to reuse the piece you cut out.

Use joist hangers to attach to the uncut joists, and face nail into the cut ends of the middle joist.

Also, you have to make sure the joists, and header joists, are a few inches away from the duct. Check local building code for the minimal allowance.
