Updated at 1:21 p.m.
Mike Williams will travel to San Francisco and will start against the 49ers, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Filed at 11:16 a.m.
Williams, a rookie, was stopped at 2:48 a.m. and was released shortly after 8 a.m. on $500 bond. His blood alcohol level was below the limit of .08, but a sheriff's department spokesman said that officers observed him speeding and weaving in traffic. Deputies said his eyes were glassy and he smelled of alcohol. Williams took a urine test, but results will not be back for several weeks.
"We are in the process of gathering all the facts," Buccaneers general manager Mark Dominik said in a statement released by the team. "Mike has been very cooperative."
He is expected to travel with the team to San Francisco and to play in Sunday's game.
