Linebacker D.J. Williams was cleared to return to the Denver Broncos completely after Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers. However, because the team watched film on Monday and had Tuesday off, Wednesday was Williams’ first time back on the practice field.
Williams has spent the last three weeks working out with team strength and conditioning coach Luke Richesson, and he’s been allowed to attend team meetings.
As for any rust that Williams may have shown in his first practice, head coach John Fox had this to say:
“He’s a pro, he’s been playing football for a while. He played at a high level a year ago. I hadn’t really seen him since training camp as far as on the practice field, running around with his teammates on our defense. I thought today was an excellent first day.”
Expect to see Williams in a limited role against the San Diego Chargers this Sunday.
