Broncos make room for DJ Williams, waive Duke Ihenacho

Doug Pensinger

Following two suspensions that saw him miss nine games, the Broncos linebacker looks to be rejoining the roster

D.J. Williams is on his way to making his 2012 debut for the Denver Broncos. After being suspended six games for submitting "non-human" urine to an NFL drug test, a DUI conviction in August led the NFL to extend Williams' ban to nine games. With the 6-3 Broncos hosting San Diego this week, Williams is clear to be added back to the roster. Rookie safety Duke Ihenacho was waived to make room for the Broncos linebacker.

Williams has played his entire career in Denver, having been drafted by the Broncos in the first round in 2004. The outside linebacker had missed just eight games in as many seasons before being hit with the suspension. Williams has eclipsed 100 tackles in four of his eight NFL seasons.

Ihenacho, a rookie free agent signing from San Jose State, played in portions of two games and recorded a special-teams tackle. He was also a participant on the Broncos practice squad.
