Despite Judge Susan Nelson’s order that the NFL should be conducting business as usual, teams are continuing to turn players away from their facilities today.
Redskins linebacker Lorenzo Alexander and center Casey Rabach attempted to enter Redskins Park this morning but were turned away, and defensive end Vonnie Holliday, who was the team’s players’ representative, told the Washington Post that he was told Redskins Park is off limits.
“The doors are still closed and as I understand it, they will remain closed until the appeals process is completed,” Holliday said. “The courts made a ruling, and you would think that would carry more weight. Guys wanted to get back to work, resume getting physical therapy at the facility and train with our strength coaches, but the doors are still locked. It’s unfortunate that they’re choosing to handle it this way.”
The Redskins say they’re deferring to the NFL on how to handle players who show up to work. The league says it will tell teams how to proceed today.
