  • Broncos' DeShawn Williams: Hurts knee in Week 18

    WIlliams suffered a knee injury during Sunday's game against the Chargers.

    Prior to his exit in the second half, Williams had yet to make a mark in the box score. As long as Williams is sidelined, Matt Henningsen and Elijah Garcia should experience some extra run along the Broncos defensive line.

  • Broncos' DeShawn Williams: Tallies multiple sacks again

    Williams recorded 2.5 sacks among five total tackles in Sunday's Week 15 win over Arizona.

    Williams logged 40 snaps in the contest and recorded a season-high five stops. He entered Week 12 without a sack but collected two in Week 13 and 2.5 in Week 15. Denver will continue to look to Williams to put pressure on opposing quarterbacks with Dre'Mont Jones (hip) out for the season.

  • Broncos' DeShawn Williams: Records two sacks

    Williams recorded four tackles (two solo) and two sacks in Sunday's 10-9 loss to Baltimore.

    The two sacks were Williams' first two of the season. Although he is listed as D.J. Jones' backup at nose tackle, he ended up seeing one more defensive snap (41). The 29-year-old also saw the field for two special-teams plays. He will look to carry that momentum into the team's Week 14 clash with the Chiefs.

  • 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: Hits IR

    Williams (elbow) has been placed on the Broncos' injured reserve, Aric DiLalla of the team's official website reports.

    Williams injured his elbow in the Broncos' Week 16 victory over the Raiders. His regular season will now come to a close. The severity of his injury is unclear at this time, but it is enough to keep him sidelined for the remainder of the regular season.

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

    The 27-year-old was considered questionable with the knee injury but is good to go Sunday. Williams should receive another start at nose tackle for the Broncos.

  • 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.

  • Broncos' DeShawn Williams: Gets the call

    Williams was elevated to the Broncos' 53-man roster Thursday, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

    Williams hasn't played an NFL game since 2016 with the Bengals, but he spent training camp in 2019 with Denver. With Dre'Mont Jones (knee) sidelined for 4-to-6 weeks, Williams could see a depth role on defense as early as Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.
