D.J. Williams burst out of his stance and put a lick on one of his teammates during a block-and-shed drill with the rest of the Denver Broncos linebackers Monday.
His position coach, Richard Smith, briefly halted the proceedings to admonish the other linebackers to take note and adjust accordingly.
Williams letting loose comes as no surprise given that Denver's leading tackler in five of his eight pro seasons has been banished to the back of the line at Broncos training camp.
Williams is facing a six-game drug suspension to start the season plus an Aug. 15 drunken driving trial that could add even more games to his punishment, so the Broncos are getting his replacements ready instead.
