"I got somebody else's kneecap," Trevathan said. "It was difficult because it was a bigger knee… I love the scar, though."
Trevathan has not been able to participate in the team drills during offseason workouts, but he is expected to increase his workload in August.
"I'm moving. I'm shuffling. I'm doing our drills. I'm doing everything right now; I'm just limited on contact," he said. "I'm feeling good right now, I'm not going to lie. But I want to feel great before I go out there again. I think I owe this team and I owe this city."
The linebacker fractured his knee twice and then dislocated it last year, playing in just two games for the Broncos thanks to the injuries. Instead of hurrying back to action, Trevathan is working on the mental aspect of his game.
"I'm limited," Trevathan said. "I can't do too much movement, but it's good for me. I get to work on my mindset. I had a year last year to work on it, but now I'm really strong with my mind. I don't like making mistakes."
Trevathan is participating in team-organized workouts that began Monday. And he feels quite good about it.
"It's doing good, man," he told the team website. "I feel like last year was a setback, but this year is a big comeback for me. They've been doing a good job in the treatment room with me, and I've just been pushing it and being smart about it."
Trevathan emerged in 2013 with an 88-tackle season in which he recorded three interceptions.
He was the team's leading tackler in 2013.
Last season, Trevathan led the Broncos in tackles.
