Broncos DL DeShawn Williams to miss final 2 games with elbow injury

Denver Broncos DeShawn Wils, a defensive lineman for the Broncos, will be out of action for the final two games due to an elbow injury. Coach Vic Fangio made the announcement Monday.

Williams (6-1, 292 pounds) “got his left elbow hyperextended” in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, according to KUSA-TV’s Mike Klis. Williams had six tackles before he left the game.

“Hate “I can’t finish these last two games. Nothing like playing for my brother,” Williams posted on his twitter page .. “Playing ball has been my joy. I want to thank #BroncosCountry” for their support. .”

is ready for next year.

Williams played in all 15 games this season, earning eight starts. He recorded 39 tackles, five quarterback hits, two pass breakups and one sack in those contests. Williams, who will turn 29 tomorrow, is scheduled to become a restricted free agent in the spring.

With Williams sidelined and Mike Purcell on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, Denver’s remaining healthy defensive linemen on the active roster are Shelby Harris, Dre’Mont Jones, Shamar Stephen and McTelvin Agim.

Once he clears COVID-19 protocol, defensive lineman Jonathan Harris would be a logical candidate to be promoted from the practice squad if Williams is placed on injured reserve.
