As expected, the Broncos kept both D.J. Williams (who never played a snap during preseason games) and Virgil Green, who were suspended six and four games, respectively.
The Broncos don’t gain anything by waiving Williams, who has been a headache and distraction with the six-game suspension, multiple failed drug tests, showing his playbook to twitter and a DWI conviction.
The Broncos have another eight weeks to decide how important Williams is to their team as they watch his replacements vow for playing time in his absence.
Virgil Green will likely be back with the Broncos following his suspension since he excels as a blocking tight end, was drafted by John Elway and John Fox and is a quality player whenever he’s called upon.
Jeremy Beal left the final preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday with a left knee injury, which was serious enough for the Broncos to place him on injured reserve for the season, ending his 2012 campaign.
