You just can't take Wood out the game right now, I think you'll see DJ in more of the 'Mike' role on Sunday.
Getting our three best LBs on the field? FANTASTIC, can't wait!

Why they can't do that. The Orange Mane did not sign off on that. Something is very wrong here.

Something about coaches getting their best players on the field. Weird stuff.

I'm sure the reason he has not posted here is because he is on a flight to Dove Valley. Don't worry he'll get this straightened out

Not shocking. He's the best pure linebacker on the roster.

hell why not? he's our best pure LB, it keeps Woodyard on the field and balling out.
hell if he plays well enough we might not have to spend a 1st rounder on MLB so we can focus on DL or RB if there is a top notch guy available.

I don't understand why people think he won't play. He's an important asset to that defense and can only make it better.

Well, aside from me floating the idea of him playing the mike a few weeks ago, let me play devil's advocate on this.

1. The team could be legitimately pissed and wants to set an example.
2. Team chemistry: Fox is old school and comes from the mind set of "go to war with the team you came out of camp with." Also he could not want to "fix" what clearly isn't broken.
3. They are playing pretty well without him.

I think he'll play, though. When you look at how tight ends have killed us, his athleticism can help there.

key in that comment is think..

Was not aware he had been promoted to DC or LB coach..

for those expecting him to be on the team next year, IMO it is getting him ready for trading when it opens up in the off season..

But then I could be all wrong about Elway wanting a few good MEN.. opposed to a bunch of knuckle heads..

Nothing that he has done so far as GM points in that direction, if anything 180 degrees from that..

Did anyone say he was starting or just that he'd be 'playing' middle linebacker? Sounds like part of the rotation to me. I just don't see how he would be able to get extensive playing time without getting reps in training camp, being suspended for over half the season and in Del Rio's new defensive system.

He will have to play himself back into the lineup, obviously. He'll get his shots, and if he doesn't produce, he won't be playing much. We shall see.

Did I mention he had to take a cut in pay just to come back to teh team this year?

Yep sounds like they really value him..

Sounds to me like showcasing him for trade value..

Linebacker D.J. Williams is eligible to return to the team, and Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway is confident that Williams has remained in top shape during his time away.

In Tuesday’s episode of Elway Access, hosted by Broncos TV’s Chris Hall, Elway said that Williams “has been working out hard” during the suspension, but it’s still important to ease him back into the game.

“You can only get in football shape by playing football,” Elway said. “That’s why it’s important to work him in there slowly. This time of year, those linebackers take a lot of hits. He is going to be able to give those guys some time and some rest and not take that beating that they take. But we have to work him in there. We can’t give him too many reps. We’ll slowly work him in there and we’ll see how he fits.”

Ya the best way to do that is to highly publicize a pay cut for the guy you want to trade. Brilliant reasoning

Must be that West Texas water.
