On Wednesday, former Miami Hurricane D.J. Williams was found guilty of driving while impaired and driving without using his headlights (is this possible?). He was pulled over around 3 A.M. near downtown Denver.
Williams is no stranger to trouble involving the NFL. He is due to face a six game suspension and now faces further penalties stemming from his most recent convictions. The league will review this matter.
When asked if Williams would play in any preseason games, head coach John Fox responded, “I haven’t decided that yet. We’re bringing him along, getting him ready for the season. And we’re about ready to go into a suspension time at the end of this month and we’ll go from there.”
Williams has been a starter at weakside linebacker for eight years now and is currently listed as a starter on the Broncos depth chart. He has been Denver’s leading tackler five of his eight seasons, however, Williams has not been working with the starters during camp.
Williams did not participate in Denver’s recent training camp that was open to the public. The Broncos plan on replacing Williams with Wesley Woodyard.
