The suspension stems from his arrest for public intoxication in May. The Cowboys were expecting a suspension, though they weren’t sure how long it would last.
Williams was arrested when he was pulled over on the side of the road while struggling to maintain control of his scooter late at night. It was later discovered he had crashed his Lamborghini into a light pole prior to that interaction.
The charges were dropped against Williams when he completed a state-mandated alcohol awareness education course and paid for the damage he had caused with his vehicle.
The veteran wideout was placed on injured reserve earlier this month as he recovers from a foot injury suffered during the offseason. He can serve the suspension while on IR.
Williams entered the season as one of the Cowboys’ top returning receivers, but he hasn’t made much of an impact with only two catches for 18 yards.
