Broncos' D.J. Williams Leaves Game With Sprained Elbow

Denver Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams left Saturday's preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks in the first quarter after a tackle. He has been diagnosed with a sprained right elbow. He is out for the rest of the game.

Williams is the team's starting weak side linebacker. Wesley Woodyard is his backup and entered the game for him, picking up half of a sack (the other half went to Elvis Dumervil). Williams has been a starter for the Broncos since he was drafted in 2004. He has moved around and played all of the linebacker positions, from the strong side, the weak side, the middle, the two middle positions in a 3-4 defense and finally back to the weak side in 2011.
