Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo announced Monday that Steven Jackson (quadriceps) is "probably" not going to play in Week 2.

Cadillac Williams will get the start next Monday night. Spags confirmed that Jackson's quad is strained, and it sounds like a week-to-week situation. The Rams have a Week 5 bye, but they'll hope to get Jackson back before then. After Jackson's early-game injury in Week 1, the Rams showed they are willing to lean heavily on Cadillac with 24 touches. The 29-year-old running back will be still be more flex option than RB2 against the Giants.

Ravens signed RCB Jimmy Smith to a four-year, $48 million extension.

According to Profootballtalk, the deal includes $21 million guaranteed. Smith is now signed through 2019. Smith was performing as one of the league's best corners last season before suffering a Lisfranc injury in Week 8. Going on 27, Smith has steadily improved over the course of his four-year career, though he has only five lifetime picks. Locking him up now is a bet that he will continue to improve. It's not an overpay. The Ravens were caught woefully short at corner last season, something they don't want to repeat going forward.

The Packers will host the Bears on Thanksgiving night.

The game, which will be broadcast on NBC, is the first 2015 tilt to get a date and time. It will be Green Bay's first home game on Thanksgiving since 1923. 2015 marks the 10th year the league has featured three games on Thanksgiving, with a rotating night contest joining Detroit and Dallas' annual home extravaganzas. Including the playoffs, the Packers are 11-2 vs. Chicago since 2009.

Coach Mike Pettine insists Johnny Manziel remains in the Browns' plans.

Pettine called Chris Mortensen's report that the Browns have "90 percent" moved on from Manziel "90 percent inaccurate." He says he filed it in the "ridiculous category." Pettine came out swinging in Manziel's defense, but all signs point toward Josh McCown being miles ahead on the depth chart, and the Browns still working to add another quarterback. McCown's talent is such that Manziel could overtake him at some point in 2015, but that's dependent on the Browns failing to land Marcus Mariota. Owner Jimmy Haslam is fixated on finding a "franchise quarterback." So far, Haslam has looked in all the wrong places.

Patriots LT Nate Solder was diagnosed with testicular cancer in April of 2014.

Thankfully, the cancer was limited to one testicle and had not spread. So doctors removed it and Solder was back on the field for workouts in June. The 27-year-old went on to start every game at left tackle during the Patriots' Super Bowl run and is now trying to raise awareness about a disease that affects 1-in-263 men.

Chargers FS Eric Weddle skipped the first day of voluntary workouts Monday and is in search of a new contract.

Weddle, 30, is owed a $7.5 million salary in the final year of his deal. "I feel highly, highly disrespected," he said. "... There is no reason for me to put out any more effort." The Chargers have been trying to reach out to Philip Rivers about an extension and, to this point, ignored Weddle's requests. Weddle is a three-time Pro Bowler and the Chargers' defensive captain.

Former Cardinals SS Adrian Wilson announced his retirement from football.

Wilson spent training camp time with the Patriots and Bears late in his career, but never played a snap for either team. He was a career Cardinal, and on Monday signed a one-day contract to retire as a member of the team. One of the NFL's premier box safeties in his heyday, Wilson earned five Pro Bowl trips and one first-team All-Pro berth. He finished his career with 27 interceptions, 16 forced fumbles, and 25 1/2 sacks. Wilson's bust is unlikely to be enshrined in Canton, but he's very much deserving of a place in the Cardinals' Ring of Honor.

Philip Rivers is in attendance for the start of the Chargers' offseason program.

Chargers GM Tom Telesco will hold a pre-draft press conference later this week, at which point he'll have an opportunity to shoot down Rivers trade rumors. (Or be non-committal.) Entering a contract year, Rivers has no plans to sign a long-term extension with the Chargers, but his future beyond 2015 is entirely up in the air.

Sources tell FOX Sports Antonio Brown is seeking a new contract and is mulling a holdout.

Brown signed a six-year, $43.04 million contract in July of 2012. Since, he's been the most productive wideout in the league, racking up 305 catches for 3,984 yards with 26 touchdowns. But his average annual salary of $8.39 million ranks 13th among receivers, so Brown won't attend offseason workouts and is also considering a holdout from both mandatory minicamps and training camp. Brown is absolutely invaluable to the Steelers, and he'll likely get a raise if he really digs his heels in. It's now a question of how long the saga will drag out.

Eagles agreed to terms with QB Tim Tebow on a one-year contract.

Although the move will generate countless headlines, Tebow is a flier signing as the Eagles begin their offseason program. Sam Bradford is the penciled-in starter with Mark Sanchez backing him up, and G.J. Kinne and Matt Barkley likely vying with Tebow to be third string. The Eagles have tried trading Barkley, but found no takers. Tebow has not played in the NFL since 2012. He spent the 2013 preseason with the Patriots, completing 11-of-30 passes for 145 yards (4.8 YPA), two touchdowns, and two interceptions, taking seven sacks among 37 dropbacks. He did rush 16 times for 91 yards (5.7 YPC). Tebow turns 28 in August.

According to ESPN's Adam Caplan, it would take "at least a first-round pick and more compensation" for the Vikings to consider trading Adrian Peterson.

That's quite a haul for a 30-year-old running back who hasn't played since Week 1 of last season. The "compensation" the Vikings are looking for is a starting cornerback, a position they're expected to address in the draft. The Vikings' front office feels the team is "so much better" with Peterson and they're absolutely right. Peterson is a foundational runner and an ideal complement to rising sophomore quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
