Denver Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams was in New York Wednesday for an appeal hearing with the NFL regarding his recent driving while ability impaired charge, according to the Denver Post.

Williams will likely be suspended an additional two-to-three games on top of his six game suspensions he is currently serving for violating the league's performance enhancement policy.

Williams drove away from a Denver nightclub with his lights off at 3 a.m. on Nov. 12, 2010 and was found guilty by a jury Aug. 15.

During the trial Williams had already been suspended six games for providing a "non-human" urine sample during a mandatory drug screening following the NFL's 2011 lockout.   

Williams will miss the Broncos upcoming game against Oakland on Sunday, New England Patriots on Oct. 7 and Sand Diego on Oct. 15.

If the NFL suspends Williams for two more games he will miss the home game against the New Orleans Saints and road game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
