ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) – The Denver Broncos will be without linebacker D.J. Williams until mid-November after the NFL added three games to his suspension Friday.

Williams was punished for violating the league’s policy and program for substances of abuse following his conviction in August of driving while ability impaired.

He already was serving a six-game suspension to start the season for violating the league’s banned-substances policy after the NFL said he supplied a “non-human” urine sample during an offseason drug test.

Williams, the team’s leading tackler in four of the last five seasons, won’t be eligible to return to the Broncos until Nov. 12.

The Broncos were flying to New England for their game against the Patriots when the new suspension was handed down.
