A mistrial in the DUI case against Broncos LB D.J. Williams means the veteran defender could miss training camp because of the new trial date.
Williams, who is facing a suspension for his violation of the NFL's personal conduct policy, will begin his DUI trial on Aug. 15. The Broncos are set to open camp in late July.
Harvey Steinberg, Williams' lawyer, asked for the mistrial before opening arguments began Monday. He says he was told prior to jury selection he would be able to excuse three jurors but ended up being allowed to excuse only two.
Williams was arrested in November 2010 after police found him driving at night without headlights on. Because it was his second arrest since entering the league, he was subject to suspension from the NFL.
