>New York Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson is inactive against the Los Angeles Chargers after being benched at New Orleans last Sunday for being late to a team meeting.Wilkerson practiced with the team all week Authentic Connor Williams Jersey (http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/connor-williams-jersey) , and coach Todd Bowles insisted the veteran “served his sentence” when asked if further discipline might be used.The Jets did not provide an immediate reason for Wilkerson not playing Sunday, but his contract situation could play a role.Wilkerson’s $16.75 million salary for next season would become fully guaranteed if he remains on New York’s roster by the third day of the league’s new year in March, so it would appear likely that the Jets will cut him during the offseason.That money is also fully guaranteed against a serious injury 鈥?so if he gets hurt during a game or practice and the injury sidelines him all of next season, New York would be on the hook for the money.Falcons guard Andy Levitre practiced on a limited basis this week and was questionable, but he’ll miss his third consecutive game after playing in 140 straight.Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas is active after being added to the injury report Saturday and listed as questionable with a hamstring injury.Patriots wide receiver Chris Hogan is out for the sixth time in seven games. Running back Mike Gillislee is active for the first time in six games with James White (ankle) and Rex Burkhead (knee) both out against Buffalo.The Dolphins put tight end Julius Thomas and right guard Jermon Bushrod on injured reserve this week, while defensive end Andre Branch is active despite a knee injury. Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston is also active after missing practice on Thursday and Friday with an illness.The Titans will be without starting cornerback Logan Ryan against the high-scoring Rams. Brice McCain is starting in place of Ryan, who hurt an ankle in the first half of last week’s loss in San FranciscoBears guard Josh Sitton is out against Cleveland with an ankle injury and tight end Adam Shaheen is missing his second straight game with a chest injury.DETROIT-CINCINNATILions: WR Bradley Marquez, RB Zach Zenner, RB Dwayne Washington, C Travis Swanson, T Rick Wagner, G T.J.

The Green Bay Packers are promoting director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst to be the team’s next general manager, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press.

The person requested anonymity because the team has made no formal announcement. Gutekunst would replace Ted Thompson, who is transitioning to a senior advisory role in the front office.

Gutekunst has been Green Bay’s player personnel director for nearly two years, though he has been with the Packers’ player personnel department for nearly two decades.

The Houston Chronicle first reported Sunday that Gutekunst had taken the job.

Gutekunst interned in the Packers’ scouting department in the summer of 1997. His first full-time scouting job came the following year as an assistant with the Kansas City Chiefs. He returned to the Packers as a college scout on Dec. 30, 1998, when he was hired by then-general manager and Hall of Famer Ron Wolf.

The Packers had several strong in-house candidates including Gutekunst.

”My goal is to find the right person and general manager who will be able to get us back to where we all think we should be and that’s winning Super Bowls,” team president Mark Murphy, who led the search, said last week.

Green Bay (7-9) finished with a losing record and out of the playoffs for the first time since 2008. The offense struggled after two-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers missed nine games because of a collarbone injury. On defense, veteran coordinator Dom Capers was fired after a season in which the unit failed to generate consistent pass rush and had to rely on inexperienced players at cornerback because of injuries and turnover.

Gutekunst has also experience working with coach Mike McCarthy, who received an extension during the season to put him under contract through 2019.

”I have the best job in pro football, and no disrespect to the other 31 clubs, I love it here, I want to be here, but it has to fit for me, too, McCarthy said last week. ”I’ve done this job long enough, I wouldn’t want the GM to hire me or partner with me if we don’t fit together.”

McCarthy is also filling several assistant coaching vacancies, including both the offensive and defensive coordinator positions.
