Report: Owners get temporary stay of injunction, lockout back on

The NFL labor situation continues to have more twists and turns than a trip up Mount Rainier to Paradise visitor center.

According to reports, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit has granted the league a temporary stay of the injunction lifting the lockout this afternoon in St. Louis, which means the lockout is back on, just hours after players were allowed back into facilities today.

So just when it appeared the league year would begin in earnest, including the possibility of free agency and trades, it appears the breaks have been slammed on today on that process.

Tight end John Carlson, receiver Deon Butler and defensive back Roy Lewis reportedly were some of the Seahawks that showed up to the team's facility today.
