The Facts: There have been points in the past when the NFL has suspended players without a criminal conviction, but that reportedly won't be the case for Williams. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Williams has been told that he will not be suspended this season.
Diehards Line: Williams was found not guilty of driving while intoxicated in Arkansas earlier this month with his attorney saying that the prosecution didn’t have enough evidence to prove that his client was over the legal limit while behind the wheel. Williams refused a breathalyzer after being pulled over in July 2016 after police said he showed signs consistent with intoxication during a field sobriety test. Players found guilty of DWI, DUI or related charges typically get suspended for two games. With Mike Gillislee now in New England, Williams is set to back up LeSean McCoy in the Buffalo backfield.
