D. J. Williams Won't Take Snaps With 1st Team Defense During Broncos Training Camp

D.J. Williams will be suspended for the first six games of the 2012 season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, and the Denver Broncos aren't wasting any time getting his replacements prepared for duty. As training camp nears in Denver, coach John Fox is saying Williams won't be taking many snaps with the first team defense. Fox is aware of the situation and the Broncos will use training camp practices to get Williams' replacements as many reps as possible.

"Obviously he’s going to miss a big portion of the season," head coach John Fox said Wednesday. "We already know, going in, that he won’t be with the ones in games one through six, so I don’t know that he’ll get many one reps in this camp."

Veterans Wesley Woodyard, Joe Mays and rookie Danny Trevathan are expected to take reps with the first team in Williams' stead.
