Just as soon as it looked like the NFL Lockout had been lifted earlier this week, a temporary stay on the injunction Judge Susan Nelson issued on Monday has been granted. Friday was the first and only day players were allowed access to team facilities to train, rehab, undergo physicals, etc.
The stay now prevents any of that as well as the start of the league year, which was expected to begin soon. The NFL was set to release notes to the teams on how to deal with trades and signings, but for now there is no need to do so.
So for rookies like Cam Newton and Von Miller, they were able to go to their new teams on Friday and meet with their coaches, but now they cannot have any contact with them again.
A complete ruling on Judge Nelson's stay will be determined next week.
