Denver Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams was sentenced to 30 days of home detention stemming from a driving while ability impaired conviction, reports the Denver Post.

That home detention will start on Feb. 7. after the Super Bowl because Williams won't be able to  wear the ankle monitor required while playing in games.

Prosecutors sought a month in jail, saying it was Williams' second ability-impaired driving conviction in just over five years. He also faces two years of mandatory probation. Williams was stopped around 2 a.m. in November 2010 for driving his SUV without headlights. He refused a sobriety test and was convicted in August of misdemeanor driving while ability impaired.
Williams hasn't played this season and is coming off a six-game suspension for tampering with a drug test. Williams starts another league suspension this week for the drunk driving conviction.
