Default DJ Williams out 3-4 weeks with dislocated elbow

D.J. Williams is in danger of missing the regular-season opener against the Oakland Raiders after the weakside linebacker suffered a dislocated right elbow Saturday night in the Broncos’ preseason game against Seattle.

“”I’ll be all right,” Williams said.

Williams is expected to be sidelined three to four weeks, which means he could miss not only the opener Spet. 12 against the Raiders but Game 2 against Cincinnati on Sept. 18.

Yeah Oakland and Cinci will be terrible this year. If we lose either of those games I will be seriously concerned about our fortunes this year.

OK, 3-4 weeks is not bad. Just heal up. From what I was reading online, it could have been as bad as like 10 weeks or something.

Just get better DJ.

What's Bunkley's diagnosis and time period?

Cincy has a good defense and offensive line.

The only problem with that team is QB and inexperienced receivers.

Oakland is a better team than Denver.

Read on twitter that DJ had his arm wrapped up in a sling with a bunch of ice after the game and Bunkley was walking around fine with nothing wrapped up. Bunkley should be good to go.

Both are better than Kansas Shiaty. Chefs will be lucky to win 6 games this year. Can't score, can't stop anyone from scoring. You should be worried about your own team.

Injury update from the room: DJ Williams left with elbow heavily bandaged. In a sling. Not good. Bunkley walking okay. Seems fine.
https://twitter.com/#!/VicLombardi/s...80297994293248


Fox downplayed the injuries to DJ Williams + Bunkley. Both will get MRIs. Bunkley was walking, nothing wrapped, no crutches, in locker room.

That's good but Im still a little worried. I'll feel better after the MRI. A small part of me is wondering if Bunkley is injured but doesnt know it or he's in denial since he's off to a good start with a new team.

That cut block on bunkley was scary. That was a potentially catastrophic hit. I consider us fortunate in both cases.

Yeah that douche that felt compelled to blindside cut block a guy like that right in his knee in a freaking preseason game is a real POS. A play like that deserves more of a fine than hits like Rahim Moore's last week.

Sucks about DJ. I hope he can be beack to 100% by Week 3's game. If he sits for Oakland and Cincy, I am sure Woody will fill in wonderfully.

Good news on Bunk that he was walking fine after the game. Gallery is such a turd. Looks like his days in Oakland have permanently tainted him.

I agree. I have a feeling he's going to be very important to our success or failure on D this year

Well, DJ would probably be out 4 weeks even if healthy.

So where is Doc with his dire and very premature call. To listen to him I expected to see film of them carrying DJ off the field with the water boy trotting behind carrying his detached arm in an ice bucket.

Wasn't dirty. Wasn't really a cut block. Wasn't scary and was because Bunkley was part of the play. Did you even see it? If not.....

Bunkley and the OLman were in open space, away from the trenches. The RB was swinging toward the sideline and Bunkley pursued. The OLman dove across, a yard in front of Bunkley, as an obsticle - not directly into or at his legs which would be dirty.

Normally a DLmen would notice and pull up or have to step over/around such a block, slowing his pursuit down enough to give the RB room. Bunkley didn't have his head on a swivel in space and ran into the sprawled-out OLmen.

Because Bunkely just ran into the blocker, rather than being struck by the blocker, the injury is probably very minor and I don't expect him to miss any practice. Going to the training room was probably just precautionary.

The bching and moaning by Denver press, Vickerson and posters here is just foolish whining.

I said his arm was flopping about. Like a fracture / dislocation. Sounds like his elbow was dislocated.
