NFL Lockout: Decision From Court Not Expected Before Monday

Though things can change it doesn't appear we'll get a ruling from the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals on the NFL lockout before Monday

To get you up to speed, last week Judge Susan Nelson lifted the lockout which caused the league to temporarily open their doors last Friday. The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals then took a look at the case and opted to put the lockout back in place on Friday evening.

In the meantime, a June 3rd court date was issued to determine the fate of the lockout.

We're waiting on the Eighth Circuit to tell us whether the lockout will remain in place leading up to that date. If it does remain in place, then much of the offseason program will be eliminated. If it's lifted, then we could see things like free agency and trades rather quickly.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that a decision on the stay is not expected to come on Friday, nor over the weekend. That would mean the a decision would come on Monday, at the earliest. Of course, it may not come on Monday and we could be in limbo for even longer.

So we wait...again.
