Sylvester Williams' knee injury not serious

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Broncos received good news on the injury front for a change Monday.

The Denver Broncos have had knee scares on consecutive days of their 2013 training camp. While Sunday's news was of the "Our starting center will miss the 2013 season" variety, Monday's news was much kinder to the injury bug-fearing Broncos fan.

Rookie defensive tackle Sylvester Williams' MRI returned negative, leaving him day-to-day after suffering a left knee injury Monday. Williams left practice, limping on his own power, and did not return.

Head coach John Fox had indicated he wasn't too worried about Williams' setback - "It doesn't appear to be super serious," he said after practice - but it was clearly close enough for the team to rush an MRI much like they did with Dan Koppen yesterday.

Denver's depth at defensive tackle is such that they do not need to rush Williams back in the lineup. While you want your rookie to get as many quality snaps as possible in training camp, the Broncos will likely proceed with caution on their top overall pick.

The players' day off, tomorrow, comes just in time.
