NEW ORLEANS — The NFL is suspending Saints defensive back P.J. Williams for two games for violating its substance abuse policy according to multiple reports.

The suspension stems from Williams' drunk driving arrest in January. That night police charged him with driving while intoxicated. In August he pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of reckless operation of a motor vehicle. Earlier this month TMZ reported on a video released of his arrest in which a woman he was with tries using the 'New Orleans No-Call' to get Williams off.

Williams has started five of the Saints' first six games. New Orleans plays at the Bears Sunday, and Cardinals the following week.
