Denver waived rookie safety Duke Ihenacho

The Denver Broncos waived safety Duke Ihenacho in order to open up a roster spot for linebacker D. J. Williams.  The NFL reinstated Williams on Monday; he had to sit out the first nine games because of two separate offenses in the NFL.

The first offense was for violating the league’s banned-substances policy after it was stated that Williams supplied a “non-human” urine sample during a drug test, that landed him a six-game suspension.  The second was from an alcohol-related driving conviction in August; the league slapped on three more games.  The nine-game suspension added up to approximately $4 million in lost wages.

With Williams coming back (he was the teams’ leading tackler in five of the  past eight seasons) it will upgrade an already solid linebacker corps of Wesley Woodyard, Keith Brooking and Von Miller.  There’s nothing wrong with a little depth.

Ihenacho has been up and down between the Broncos’ practice squad and active roster all season. The undrafted rookie from San Jose State has played in two games and made one special teams tackle.
