From 2005-2013, Joel Dreesen played with the Jets, Texans and Broncos during his eight-season career in the NFL.

Currently, Dreessen is one of the hosts of The Fan Morning Show on Denver’s 104.3.

During Wednesday’s broadcast, Dreessen talked about a leg injury he suffered during his playing days.

A little while later, the former tight end posted a photo of said black-and-blue leg on Twitter.

Dreessen told the Buzzer the injury happened during a 2011 game against the Bengals.

The struggle is real.
