DENVER — The NFL suspended Denver Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams for three more games Friday.
The new punishment is for violating the league’s substance abuse policy following his conviction in August of driving while ability impaired (DWAI).
Williams is already serving a six-game suspension for violating the NFL’s banned substances policy after the league says he supplied a “non-human” urine sample for a drug test during the offseason.
Williams has led the Broncos in tackles in four of the last five seasons. He won’t be available to return to the team until Nov. 12.
The Broncos left Denver Friday for Sunday’s game in Foxboro, Mass. against the New England Patriots.
