Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams wasn’t expected to play any time soon, and the NFL has now confirmed that Williams will be on the shelf a little longer.
Williams, who was already in the middle of a six-game suspension for allegedly cheating on a drug test by filling the specimen bottle with something other than his urine, has now been suspended three more games for his recent drunk driving conviction.
In August, a Colorado jury found Williams guilty of driving while ability impaired, the second time he has been convicted of that crime in Colorado.
Williams has already missed four games. He will now miss five more games, and the Broncos’ bye week, before being allowed to return to the team on Monday, November 12. He will be eligible to play against the Chargers on Sunday, November 18.
