(AP Photo/Chris Schneider) On Monday, Broncos Coach John Fox made two positive announcements when meeting with the media at Dove Valley. First, Fox noted that defensive end Elvis Dumervil, who suffered a shoulder injury on Sunday and had an MRI this morning, did not suffer a tear.  ”(The) MRI proved negative. It’s a muscle strain.  So that was good news,” Fox told the team’s official website. Secondly, Fox announced that ninth-year linebacker D.J. Williams is back from multiple suspensions.  ”We get an exemption for D.J. this week.  We’re excited to have him back. He’s a good football player.”  With an exemption, the Broncos will not have to make a corresponding roster move until after Week 11. Williams will likely play this weekend—in a limited role at the very least—while Dumervil is “day-to-day,” according to Fox. The Broncos’ defense, ranked sixth overall this season, will not have trouble finding a role for Williams, who recorded 90 tackles, 5.0 sacks and three forced fumbles in thirteen games last season. It’s good to see that Dumervil’s injury was not serious.  Meanwhile, it will be interesting to see how quickly Williams returns to Denver’s starting lineup.  He could be inserted as early as this week when the Broncos take on San Diego in Denver.
