1. The Supreme Court ruled Monday that President Trump’s immigration travel ban against six majority-Muslim countries can take full effect while legal challenges against the latest version are still tied up in courts. The ruling means all travelers from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia and Chad with “bona fide” connections to the United States cannot enter the United States while the cases proceed. (WCSH)

2. The NFL suspended New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski one game on Monday for a late, gratuitous hit to the head of Bills defensive back Tre’Davious White. Gronkowski will appeal the punishment, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told The Associated Press. White entered the concussion protocol, Bills Coach Sean McDermott said. After the game, Patriots Coach Bill Belichick appeared to apologize to his Buffalo counterpart. Gronkowski also apologized, saying he let his frustration get the better of him. (Press Herald)

3. TIME has narrowed down the list of candidates for its 2017 Person of the Year to 10 finalists.

NFL player and protestor Colin Kaepernick, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Amazon founder (and Washington Post owner) Jeff Bezos, Justice Department special prosecutor Robert Mueller, the 800,000 undocumented immigrants known as “The Dreamers,” and the women of the “#MeToo” movement against sexual harassment and abuse are also contenders for this year’s award, as is Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins. The winner will be revealed on Wednesday’s episode of TODAY. (Today)
