ENGLEWOOD -- If the Denver Broncos make the second round of the NFL playoffs, cornerback Darrent Williams is hopeful he’ll be ready to join them. Williams said Tuesday that although doctors initially told him he would be out six to eight weeks with a groin injury, a specialist said he could be back in three to four weeks. Williams, who injured his groin during a game against Baltimore on Dec. 11, said he started riding a stationary bicycle on Monday. If the Broncos get a bye in the playoffs, Williams said he wanted to play in their first playoff game. “If we get a bye, that sounds realistic for me to come back for that first playoff game,” Williams said. “We’re just taking it day by day and week by week right now. It depends how fast I heal up.” Williams said he is undergoing four to five hours of treatment and rehabilitation per day to get back on the field as quickly as possible. “It’s real aggressive,” Williams said. “We’ve been trying to go at it pretty tough.” CONTACT THE WRITER: 476-4891 or email@example.com.
