Packers' Joe Philbin will coach Sunday

Green Bay offensive coordinator Joe Philbin will return to his coaching duties Sunday, when the Packers host the New York Giants in an NFC Divisional playoff game at Lambeau Field.

Philbin had been away from team due to the death of his son, Michael, this past week. The 21-year-old was found in a river on Monday and a preliminary autopsy has found that he died from drowning.

The Oshkosh Police Department released a statement Wednesday, saying the cause of Michael Philbin's death was from fresh water drowning. The release said no other evidence of foul play was discovered during the autopsy.
