From combined dispatches

Prosecutors say a grand jury has indicted a suspect on murder charges in the 2007 drive-by shooting of Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams.

Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey said Wednesday that Willie Clark faces 39 counts, including first-degree murder and attempted murder.

Clark is in federal custody in a separate case. He is the first person to be indicted in Williams’ death.

The 24-year-old Williams was shot and killed while riding in a rented limousine early on New Year’s Day in 2007 after leaving a Denver nightclub.

The indictment says Williams and Clark had both been at the club with separate groups of friends, and there had been an altercation between members of the two groups.

COWBOYS: Cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones was involved in a fight with one of his bodyguards, according to Dallas police, the night before attending a previously scheduled team meeting with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

No one was arrested and no one will be charged in connection with the fight late Tuesday at The Joule, an upscale downtown hotel.

PATRIOTS: Quarterback Tom Brady had surgery on his left knee a month after a season-ending injury, according to a published report.

The Boston Globe reported that the surgery was performed Monday in Los Angeles. Asked if he had talked to Brady since the surgery, Brady’s replacement, Matt Cassel, said that he put in a phone call.

“I haven’t gotten a return phone call yet,” Cassel said. “I’m sure he’s just resting.”

COLTS: Marvin Harrison is being sued by a man who says he was shot in the hand and body in April by the Indianapolis star.

Harrison, who was never arrested or charged, is being sued by Dwight Dixon for $100,000 in damages in a suit filed in Philadelphia on Sept. 2. Police are investigating the shooting, the district attorney’s office said.

RAMS: Wide receiver Dane Looker will have additional tests designed to rule out an aneurysm after a CAT scan that cleared him from a concussion revealed a brain abnormality.

Dr. Matt Matava, a team physician, said Looker also would be examined Thursday by a neurosurgical consultant.
