NFL Heads To Court
Judge set to hear arguments against player lockout.
The NFL lockout heads to the courtroom today.
A U.S. District Court judge in St. Paul, Minnesota will hear arguments from attorneys representing NFL players who want the lockout lifted.
The court hearing will mark the first time representatives for the NFL players and owners have met since the lockout was imposed more than three weeks ago.
With NFL stadiums and facilities padlocked players have been forced to work out on their own, not knowing what the immediate future will bring.
While it's possible the judge can grant a preliminary injunction to end the lockout, a decision likely won't come today and could take weeks.
Meanwhile, the NFL's coaching staffs will continue to evaluate talent and prepare for the draft, one event that will take place beginning April 28th regardless of the labor situation.
