Broncos LB Williams A Step Closer To Return

DENVER (AP) – The Denver Broncos may have leader and top linebacker D.J. Williams available for the first time this season.

Williams, the team’s top tackler in 2010, missed the opening two games with an aching elbow, but has returned to practice this week.

That’s not all: The Broncos also could have running back Knowshon Moreno (hamstring), wide receiver Brandon Lloyd (groin) and pass rush specialist Elvis Dumervil (shoulder) back on the field Sunday in Tennessee as well. They all were taking part in practice Friday in the portion the media was allowed to watch.

Sitting out Friday were Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey (hamstring), wideout Eddie Royal (groin) and rookie tight end Julius Thomas (high ankle sprain). They haven’t practiced all week.
