Not much change on the Packers injury report:

Packers president Mark Murphy summed up the late GM Ted Thompson: "It was never about Ted; it was always what's best for the organization." Current GM Brian Gutekunst called his mentor "a giant here in the building … His honor and ethics, there was no compromise there."

Rob Gronkowski was asked about him and Tom Brady missing on a couple throws last week. Gronk said playfully, "He told me I was running too slow, so that's why the ball was overthrown. I told him he's just gotta stop working out because his arm's too strong and he can't read my speed."

DE Breeland Speaks was signed to a reserve/futures contract. He was a second-round pick out of Ole Miss in 2018 by the Chiefs. Giants taking a shot on him after his career was derailed early by an injury and suspension. Floated around some practice squads this season.

Thoughts on Robert Saleh's intro: There won't be any memes off this presser. He was head coach-like, demonstrating a clear vision for the Jets. He praised Sam Darnold, but didn't commit to him — no surprise there. He announced his OC (Mike LeFleur) and DC (Jeff Ulbrich). The only thing that seems clumsy is that he will be working for an owner (Woody Johnson) he's never met. That's mitigated somewhat by the new organizational structure. Saleh reports to GM Joe Douglas, whose power has increased.

Marcedes Lewis, one of the Packers' vocal leaders, offered a glimpse into what his NFC title game pregame message will be: "Nobody's ever going to remember this championship game if we don't get to the Super Bowl. Understand the magnitude, but be in the moment. It's a legacy game, do the best when your best is needed, and you'll always remember that."

With the Eagles primed to hire Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni as their next head coach, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the decision has a trickle-down effect in New England. Josh McDaniels, the Patriots offensive coordinator, was a top candidate in Philadelphia and this should ensure his return to New England. McDaniels figures to play a key role in the Patriots' QB evaluations.

Tramon Williams was back on the field and even has his old No 38 back. DBs were way down at the other end of the field, but trust me was in that group.

Here's a look at Vita Vea (No. 50) at practice today — his first real practice since suffering a fractured right ankle in Week 5, as yesterday was a walk-thru. It's tough to tell in terms of angles, but looking back at previous clips, it's possible he's altered his stance a bit, although this is a very small sample size of drills.

Assuming Tramon Williams passes all the protocols, the veteran DB will start his third stint with the Packers on the practice squad. "It's great to have him back in the building," coach Matt LaFleur said. "He's a great veteran leader … we'll take it through the week and see where it goes."

Rams linebackers coach Joe Barry will follow Brandon Staley to the Chargers and will become the passing game coordinator and linebackers coach, a source confirmed to ESPN. NFL Network first reported. Barry came to L.A. from the Washington Football Team with Rams coach Sean McVay.
