Buccaneers WR Mike Williams Will Travel, Start

Despite his DUI arrest earlier this morning, Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie wide receiver Mike Williams will travel with the team and start on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, ESPN's Pat Yasinskas reports.

"We are in the process of gathering all the facts," Buccaneers general manager Mark Dominik said in a statement. "Mike has been very cooperative."

A fourth-round pick (101st overall) out of Syracuse, Williams leads the Buccaneers in receptions (40), receiving yards (627), and touchdowns (5).

Williams was arrested at 2:48am, and registered a blood-alcohol level below the legal limit of .08. A urine sample was taken, which is done when authorities suspect that the driver was impaired by another substance.

After posing $500 bail, Williams was released.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter is now being told that Williams will not play on Sunday.
