Saints re-signed Drew Brees to a two-year, $50 million contract.

There was some hand-wringing, but the expected deal finally got done. NFL Network's Jane Slater reports the deal includes $27 million guaranteed. Most of that money is likely to come in the first year, but that should not be a concern after Brees played as well as ever last season. That said, he turned 39 in January, and the Saints have no long-term answers on the roster. They could look to change that in the draft.

Bills WLB Matt Milano is done for the season with a fractured fibula.

Milano had a terrific 2018 season in both pass coverage and run defense, emerging as a building block alongside first-round MLB Tremaine Edmunds. The good news is Milano's broken bone will heal smoothly. Coach Sean McDermott indicated Monday that Milano will likely be ready for the start of offseason workouts.

The Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett believes Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) has played his final snap as a Lion.

Ansah reinjured his shoulder in Sunday's loss to Arizona, which sounds like it'll end the once-feared pass rusher's year. Ansah played the 2018 season on the franchise tag. The Matt Patricia regime has no previous ties to Ansah.

Broncos CB Isaac Yiadom is expected to miss Week 15 with a separated shoulder.

They'll have to turn back to journeyman Tramaine Brock on Saturday night against the Browns. Brock was previously benched for Yiadom, a third-round pick out of Boston College. The Broncos are already without top CB Chris Harris (fibula).

Josh Doctson is in the NFL's concussion protocol.

He must have suffered the injury late in Sunday's blowout loss to the Giants because we didn't see it happen on the field. Doctson has flirted with actual WR4 value lately, topping 50 yards in three straight games.

Longtime NFL draft guru and league personnel executive Gil Brandt tweeted Monday that he'd "make a rather heavy wager" Oregon QB Justin Herbert will enter the 2019 NFL draft.

"I'd also wager he'll be a top-5 pick," added Brandt. Most league observers have suspected Herbert will stay in school because his little brother arrives at Oregon next year as a freshman on the team. This is one of the weakest quarterback classes in recent memory, however, and Herbert would be the shoo-in favorite to go No. 1 overall. In draft-order projections were the season to end today, the Raiders (No. 3), Jaguars (No. 7), Bucs (No. 8), and Giants (No. 10) are the quarterback-neediest teams slated for top-ten picks. The Bengals (No. 11) and Redskins (No. 13) could also get involved in trade discussions to move into top-quarterback draft territory.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Tyreek Hill (heel) does not have a serious injury and is considered "day to day."

Hill played through pain on Sunday, but he wound up finishing the game and registered 139 yards on 14 targets. The trick will be for Hill to get game ready on a short week with the Chargers visiting Kansas City for Thursday Night Football. It would be a surprise if Hill did much of anything in practice this week.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Jordan Reed's toe sprain is not "believed to be major," but that it is still possible he misses the remainder of the season.

Reed's Monday MRI is supposedly "precautionary." Considering his injury history — especially foot/toe injury history — and the Redskins' embarrassing and complete collapse, it's hard to believe Reed will rush out there for three meaningless games. It will be a good sign if he avoids injured reserve in the next 48 hours, however. His status will be updated no later than Wednesday, when the Redskins must issue their first injury report.

Cardinals placed DT Robert Nkemdiche on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

The 2016 first-rounder needs surgery. It's the latest in a biblical wave of injuries for a team that has been running an expansion-level roster out there in recent weeks. Long struggling to make an impact, Nkemdiche made his first six career starts this season while also tallying his first 4.5 sacks. As usual, he earned negative marks from Pro Football Focus. Going on 25 and headed into the final year of his rookie contract, Nkemdiche will be on the spot in 2019. Injuries have been an ongoing issue.

Speaking Monday, Saints coach Sean Payton confirmed Ted Ginn (knee) is a candidate for return from injured reserve.

The same is true of OG Josh LeRibeus (ankle). Ginn has not played since Week 4. It's possible the Saints have grown more interested in his return because of Tre'Quan Smith's highly-inconsistent rookie play. Ginn is eligible to resume practicing — or playing — whenever the Saints wish.

Speaking Monday, Ravens coach John Harbaugh did not commit to Joe Flacco (hip) as his Week 15 starter if healthy, only saying he would be a part of the game plan.

Harbaugh made it sound as if Flacco will finally be ready to return against the Bucs but said his role "could entail anything right now." "We have a plan," Harbaugh continued. "We have to talk to the guys about it. Whether we share that publicly, we'll have to decide as the week goes on." It certainly sounds like Harbaugh is leaning toward Lamar Jackson as his starter, but we would not etch that in stone after Jackson had another mixed day against the Chiefs. It's quite possible we head into Sunday not knowing the Ravens' plan at quarterback.
Dec 10 - 2:44 PM

Speaking Monday, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he expected Kenneth Dixon's role to grow going forward.

Gus Edwards out-touched Dixon 16-9 against the Chiefs, but Dixon was the more effective player. Edwards had a modest snap advantage (31-23). It looks like we are headed for a muddled Dixon, Edwards and Ty Montgomery committee for the final three games of the season. The fact that Dixon actually catches passes probably gives him a slight Week 15 fantasy advantage on Edwards against the Bucs.
