With one suspension finished, Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams is back at the team's headquarters Tuesday as he begins serving a second suspension under a new set of rules.
Williams was suspended from the Broncos' first six games for violating the league's policy concerning performance-enhancing drugs. His next three-game suspension was the result of an alcohol conviction that falls under the NFL's substance-abuse policy.
The league's substance-abuse program aims for its players interacting with the team. Williams is at the team's facility Tuesday working out. He can have interaction with his coaches and players.
What Williams can't do is practice or play in games. Williams is also forbidden from conducting interviews with the media.
A Broncos starting linebacker since he was a first-round draft pick in 2004, Williams can return to the team in a full, active-player capacity on Nov. 12, the day after the Broncos' play their ninth game during Week 10 at Carolina.
