Packers: Offensive tackle JaredVeldh­eer is back with Green Bay, giving him a chance to compete in playoff games for different teams on backto-back weekends.

Packers coach Matt LaFleur said Veldheer will be available for their NFC semifinal Saturday with the Los Angeles Rams (11-6).

Veldheer, 33, was the Colts’ starting left tackle for their final two games, including an AFC first-round loss to Buffalo last weekend.

Because the Colts merely elevated him from the practice squad for game day and didn’t sign him to their 53-man roster, the Packers (13-3) were able to sign him this week.

Veldheer joined the Packers late last season and was their starting right tackle for an NFC semifinal victory over Seattle.

Bills: Buffalo signed running back Devonta Freeman to its practice squad to add veteran depth after placing rookie ZackMoss on injured reserve with an ankle injury. Freeman is a seventh-year player who was released by the New York Giants last week.
