Denver Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams is going on trial on allegations of driving under the influence that could sideline him for several games if he is convicted.
Williams' trial in Denver District Court on Wednesday is the result of his arrest on Nov. 12, 2010, when police stopped him for driving without headlights and then cited him for DUI.
The weakside linebacker is already facing a six-game suspension for failing an offseason drug test. A conviction in the drunken-driving case could result in an even longer suspension.
Williams has filed a lawsuit challenging the NFL suspension. His DUI trial was expected to conclude in May but a judge declared a mistrial after Williams' attorney objected to the jury selection process.
Williams has led the Broncos in tackling five times.

Denver Broncos rookie Derek Wolfe has been climbing the depth chart and has been receiving some playing time with the first-team defense, according to the Denver Post.
Wolfe primarily played tackle at Cincinnati, but has been lining up at end in the Broncos 4-3 defense. He would appear to be best suited as a run-stuffing end in their system, but managed to record two sacks in the...

Still, Andre Caldwell was swarmed for autographs after a recent Broncos scrimmage. One man asked Caldwell to hold his baby before pulling out his cell phone for a quick shot of the two.
"That was something new for me," the wide receiver said of the request.
After a substantial 31-3 win over the Chicago Bears, the Denver Broncos are feeling pretty good about their team at this moment.
All of this being said, everyone who has praised the Broncos and the efforts of No. 18 at the helm, are forgetting that the savior that is Peyton Manning only played in one series during the contest.
A total of 12 plays versus the Bears is hardly anything...
