Gregg Williams permitted to speak to son, coach Jeff Fisher after Seahawks-Rams game
A source told CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora that Williams is permitted to speak to coach Jeff Fisher after the game but only about non-football matters. Williams is also permitted to speak to son, Blake, an assistant on Fisher's staff, under the same parameters.

Gregg Williams was suspended indefinitely this spring by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for his role in the Saints bounty scandal. By the time he received the news, Williams had taken the Rams' defensive coordinator job working for longtime friend Jeff Fisher.
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.
La Canfora added that Williams watched the game from a suite at the Edward Jones Dome and permission has not been granted for Williams to attend any games beyond this week. He had previously been watching Rams games from a downtown hotel near the stadium.
