TE Dreessen Recently Had Knee Scoped, Will Miss Minicamp

Joel Dreessen

Broncos head coach John Fox told reporters after Thursday’s practice that tight end Joel Dreessen has had arthroscopic surgery on his knee and will not be available for the remainder of offseason workouts, including the team’s mandatory minicamp June 11-13.

Julius Thomas, who had ankle surgery last April after missing most of his rookie season in 2011, has taken many of the snaps in passing situations in Dreessen’s absence.

“Just a little knee procedure, scope, done, just to clean it up,” Fox said. “It’s been a good deal for Julius.”
