The Denver Broncos have gotten some bad news on tight end Joel Dreessen.
The team's starting tight end will be sidelined for the rest of training camp after suffering a setback with his surgically repaired left knee, The Denver Post reported Saturday.
Dreessen originally underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in late May. He will now undergo a second arthroscopic procedure to clean up the knee, a person with knowledge of the procedure told USA Today on Sunday.
It's a sudden turn of events for Dreessen, who had been practicing without any reported issues through Friday. He sat out the team's scrimmage on Saturday because of pain in the knee, according to USA Today.
We figure Jacob Tamme to get more catches of the group, but Dreessen is the better blocker and has also been a red zone target. Neither player is more than a TE2 option.
