Williams (ankle), who remains a free agent, received full medical clearance in March, Chris Tomasson of The Denver Gazette reports.

Williams has reportedly drawn interest from five NFL teams, but he isn't expected to officially ink with a club until after April's draft. The veteran cornerback also reportedly isn't a candidate to re-sign with the Broncos, for whom he suited up for 14 regular-season games in 2022 before missing all of the 2023 campaign due to an ankle injury that required surgery.

Not expected to return to Denver

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-09

Williams (ankle) is not expected to be re-signed by the Broncos, Ryan McFadden of The Denver Post reports.

Williams is set to become a free agent Wednesday, and it doesn't appear like he'll be back in Denver for a third season in 2024. The cornerback missed the entirety of the 2023 campaign as a result of a left ankle injury, and he'll now enter the open market. In his most recent active year in 2022, Williams recorded 44 tackles, including 1.0 sacks, while intercepting a pass and deflecting seven others over 14 games with Denver.

Undergoes ankle surgery

Williams underwent surgery on his left ankle Thursday, Chris Tomasson of The Denver Gazette reports.

The expected recovery timeline of 12 weeks all but rules out the possibility of Williams returning this season, but there's good reason for optimism that he'll be ready to go again soon after the 2023 campaign wraps up. In the meantime, Fabian Moreau and Ja'Quan McMillian seem to be Denver's favored options at cornerback behind incumbent All-Pro Patrick Surtain.

Likely done for season

Williams (ankle) is set to have another surgery Monday and probably won't return this season, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Williams had ankle surgery at the end of August and was consequently placed on IR. Per Chris Tomasson of The Denver Gazette, the cornerback had been working out on a side field, but it was recently determined that he hasn't regained enough strength in his leg. That finding necessitated the need for a second surgery, which will almost certainly end Williams' season unless the Broncos are able to get into the playoffs.

Headed to IR

The Broncos placed Williams (ankle) on injured reserve Thursday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.

Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reported Monday that Williams was set to undergo a procedure for an ankle injury he sustained in early August. The estimated recovery time is eight weeks, so it's likely that Williams will miss more than the four games required for being placed on injured reserve. The nine-year veteran out of Pittsburgh registered 44 tackles (30 solo), one sack, seven pass deflections and an interception in 14 games for the Broncos last season.

Needs ankle surgery

Williams (ankle) is scheduled to undergo a procedure that will sideline him an estimated eight weeks, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

Williams' surgery timing forces a difficult decision on the Broncos. The 31-year-old nickelback can either be carried onto the initial 53-man roster, then placed on short-term IR with the chance to return down the stretch of the 2023 season, or he can be placed on season-ending IR now and free up a roster spot ahead of the cut-down deadline. In either case, losing Williams for at least the first portion of the regular season will be a notable blow to new defensive coordinator Vance Joseph's scheme.

Suffers injury setback

Williams is expected to undergo treatment and rehab for an ankle injury sustained last week, and his goal is to be healthy in time for Denver's regular-season opener versus the Raiders on Sept. 10,Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Williams has been sidelined since last week due to this injury, and he recently received a second medical opinion that pushed back his timeline for a return, per Klis. The 31-year-old nickelback played a fairly significant role when healthy for Denver last season, accumulating 44 tackles, seven passes defended and one interception over 14 games. While the exact nature of this ankle issue is still unclear, it's likely that Williams and the team could air on the side of caution, as he's also seen as a candidate for an even bigger role in new defensive coordinator Vance Joseph's blitz-heavy scheme.

More blitzing opportunities ahead?

Andrew Mason of Denver Sports believes that Williams could in for a big year under new defensive coordinator Vance Joseph.

Williams posted 44 tackles, seven pass deflections, one interception and one sack in 14 games last season while starting in eight contests. Opposing quarterbacks posted a 69.3 rating while targeting Williams last year, which was a career best. He has 10 quarterback hits over the past four seasons, which Mason believes could translate into more opportunities in Joseph's blitz-friendly scheme. Williams provides meaningful depth to a Broncos secondary headlined by corners Patrick Surtain and Damarri Mathis and safeties Kareem Jackson and Justin Simmons.

Done with concussion

Williams suffered a concussion in Sunday's game against the Chargers and will not return, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

Williams will have to finish his season on the sidelines. In his absence, Essang Bassey will likely take on a bigger role in the Broncos' secondary.
