Packers CB Tramon Williams active for NFC title game
Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams is in line to become the first player in NFL history to play in the same postseason with two different teams.
Williams was listed as active prior to Sunday’s NFC Championship Game against the visiting Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Williams, who turns 38 in March, was signed by Green Bay and placed on its practice squad after he was waived by the Baltimore Ravens on Monday. He had two separate stints with the Packers over his 14-year career, winning the Super Bowl with Green Bay after the 2010 season when he also was named to the Pro Bowl.
Williams played in six games for the Ravens this season, and then also in Sunday’s playoff loss to the Buffalo Bills. He made 17 tackles in those seven games.
Green Bay cornerback Kevin King is active for the game after tweaking his back during practice.
The Packers listed the following players as inactive: quarterback Jordan Love, cornerbacks Josh Jackson and Ka’dar Hollman, safety Vernon Scott, linebacker Jonathan Garvin, tight end Jace Sternberger and defensive lineman Kingsley Keke.
The Buccaneers listed Antoine Winfield Jr. as inactive after the safety injured his ankle on Thursday. Mike Edwards is expected to start in his place.
Tampa Bay listed the following players as inactive: wide receiver Antonio Brown, quarterback Ryan Griffin, running back Ke’Shawn Vaughn, tight end Antony Auclair, defensive lineman Jeremiah Ledbetter and defensive lineman Khalil Davis.
