DENVER (AP) -- Jurors have started deliberating in the drunken driving case against Denver Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams.

A jury was seated Wednesday, and testimony and closing arguments wrapped up by the afternoon.

The weakside linebacker is already facing a six-game suspension for failing an offseason drug test. A conviction for driving under the influence and traffic charges could result in an even longer suspension.

Williams' trial was delayed several times, including last fall after he suffered a dislocated right elbow during a game. In May, just as opening statements were about to begin, his lawyer, Harvey Steinberg, won a mistrial after objecting to how jurors were selected.
