 BEREA, Ohio (AP) -Browns defensive end Orpheus Roye will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right knee, an early training camp setback for Cleveland, which could be without its best lineman to start the season.
Roye, who missed the final five games last season with a knee injury, had been bothered by a ``clicking'' sound during the first days of camp, coach Romeo Crennel said Wednesday.
``They are going to clean the joint out,'' said Crennel, adding Roye has torn cartilage in his knee.
The 34-year-old Roye will have surgery on Thursday. The procedure will be on the same knee Roye had operated on during the offseason.
Crennel said doctors will not know until after the operation how long it will take for Roye to get back on the field.
Although bothered by bad knees the past few seasons, Roye, who has been with the Browns since 2000, has been one of the team's most dependable and durable players.
Roye's experience is vital in Cleveland's 3-4 defensive scheme, which puts a premium on its ends to rush the quarterback and contain the perimeter.
Cleveland's defense was ranked 29th against the run last season.
The Browns signed Roye to a three-year contract extension in March 2006.
