GREEN BAY, Wis., Jan. 15 (UPI) -- Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin was back with the team Sunday at its NFC divisional playoff game following the death of his son.

Philbin was in his usual spot in the Lambeau Field press box as the Packers took on the New York Giants, returning to the squad for the first time since his 21-year-old son, Michael Philibin, was found dead in a Wisconsin river Monday.

A preliminary autopsy indicated the younger Philbin died from drowning.

Oshkosh, Wis., police said no evidence of foul play was discovered during the autopsy.
