  • Broncos' DeShawn Williams: Re-ups with Broncos

    Williams (elbow) re-signed with Denver via a one-year contract Friday, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

    Williams missed the last two games of the 2021 season due to an elbow injury, but it looks like there are no lingering concerns about his health. The Broncos allowed Williams to hit free agency but didn't wait long before bringing the depth defensive tackle back into the fold.

  • Broncos' DeShawn Williams: Questionable with knee injury

    Williams (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Williams racked up five tackles (three solo) against the Bills last week, but he apparently sustained a knee injury that puts his status against the Chargers into question. If he isn't able to play, Sylvester Williams would likely start at nose tackle.

  • Broncos' DeShawn Williams: Notches two sacks

    Williams totaled three tackles, three quarterback hits and two sacks during Sunday's 20-13 win over Miami.

    Williams and the Broncos' front put Tua Tagovailoa in a bind Sunday with a barrage of twists and stunts, leading to the first two sacks of Williams' season. Though he's faced a long and winding road to the starting lineup, Williams has made the most of Mike Purcell's season-ending foot injury. He'll be relied on Sunday to push the pocket against Taysom Hill, who can be difficult to rush from the edge.

  • Broncos' DeShawn Williams: Clear for matchup against Dolphins

    Williams (ankle) is active for Sunday's home game against Miami.

    An appearance on the injury report late in the practice week threatened Williams' Week 11 availability, but he's been able to overcome his ankle issue in time for kickoff. The 27-year-old has started three consecutive games at defensive tackle for the Broncos after collecting just one start over his first four appearances of the season. Williams has racked up 20 tackles, two QB hits, two pass deflections and one interception on the year.

  • Broncos' DeShawn Williams: Surfaces on injury report

    Williams (ankle) was added to the injury report Friday and is considered questionable for Sunday's game versus the Dolphins, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    It remains to be seen how serious Williams' injury is, but it's never a good sign to get hurt just two days before a game. He was still listed as a limited participant in Friday's session. If Williams misses Week 11, Sylvester Williams and McTelvin Agim will rotate in at nose tackle.

    Williams has not played a snap in the NFL since 2016, but spent time with the Dolphins and Colts last season in addition to Denver's practice squad during the offseason. The 6-foot-1, 284-pound defensive lineman's quickness could make him a suitable interior depth piece.
