The Broncos spent some time on Saturday worrying that they could be losing their top nickel corner for a while, if not for the whole season.
Williams joined the Broncos as a free agent from the 49ers. Last year, he appeared in 14 games with eight starts. He spent five years in San Francisco and, before that, two with the Browns.
Given the division in which they play, the Broncos will need their top corners for as much of the season as they can have them available. In the nickel defense, Williams will work the inside, while Pat Surtain II and Ronald Darby cover the outside receivers.
