Defensive linemen Sylvester Williams and Darius Kilgo have been added to the Broncos’ practice squad today.

The depth players were likely added due to news last week that Jurrell Casey suffered a torn bicep against the Pittsburgh Steelers but played through the injury against the Bucs. MRI results showed last week just before the Jets game that he is done for the year.

The 6-foot-2, 328-pound Williams is an eighth-year player who was part of Denver’s 2015 Super Bowl-winning team. In his 94 career NFL games, Williams has registered 133 tackles (89 solo), 6 sacks (26 yards), three passes defensed and one fumble recovery. Selected by Denver 28th overall in the 2013 NFL Draft, Williams spent the first four seasons of his career with the Broncos before playing for the Titans (2017), Lions (2018), Dolphins (2018) and Chargers (2019).

Williams has seen action in nine postseason games (7 starts) during his career. His playoff totals include 13 tackles (10 solo), one sack and one pass defensed.

Kilgo is a fifth-year player drafted by the Broncos in the sixth round of the 2015 draft and was on the active roster his entire rookie season during Denver’s Super Bowl 50 run.

Kilgo played in 29 games with Denver (2015-16) and Tennessee (2018) in addition to spending time with New England (2016-17), Jacksonville (2017), Houston (2018) and Detroit (2019). His career totals include 16 tackles (11 solo), one pass defensed and one quarterback hit.

Broncos’ next game will be Oct. 11 in New England where Williams and Kilgo could be ready to help Mike Purcell, Shelby Harris, DeShawn Williams, Timmy Jernigan and McTelvin Agim, currently on the active roster. Deyon Sizer is also on the team’s practice squad.
