With players throughout the league planning to report for duty on Tuesday, the NFL plans to allow the players to enter the facilities — assuming a stay of the order lifting the lockout is not previously granted.
Both Albert Breer of NFL Network and Adam Schefter of ESPN have reported that players will be permitted to enter. Schefter reports that the league has recommended that teams keep their weight rooms closed.
We’ve reported that the league also has instructed coaches not to talk to players.
So, basically, they’ll be permitted to loiter. But that’s a far cry from the league’s initial position that the doors would remain locked.
