Gregg Williams was suspended indefinitely this spring by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for his role in the Saints bounty scandal.
He never got the chance to coach in a regular-season game, but as CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported Sunday, the league allowed him to attend the Week 4 Seattle-St. Louis game at the Edward Jones Dome "under the stipulation he is not on the field at any time and has no contact with fans or the media." Williams' son, Blake, is on Fisher's coaching staff.
A source told La Canfora that Williams is permitted to speak to Blake after the game, but only about non-football matters. Williams is also permitted to speak to head coach Jeff Fisher under the same parameters, given their 20-plus year relationship. Source: CBS Sports

If you line up all the Rams' wins at the end of the season and held a beauty pageant, this 19-13 grunter over the Seattle Seahawks would rank dead last. But in the standings, all wins look beautiful.

Jackson has been very limited this week in practice with a groin injury.
