DENVER (AP) - Denver Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams may miss the team's game against Cleveland Thursday after injuring his knee in the fourth quarter of Denver's 26-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins Sunday.

Running back Michael Pittman also was injured early in the game. Williams' injury came as he tackled running back Ronnie Brown.

Broncos coach Mike Shanahan says Williams injured his MCL in his knee. Williams led the team with 76 tackles heading into the game.

Pittman was replaced by rookie Ryan Torain after he aggravated a lingering neck injury.
