|NFL: Lockout Back, Effective 'Immediately'
|EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- The NFL lockout is back.
The league announced the news late Friday, hours after an appeals court victory. League spokesman Greg Aiello tells The Associated Press that teams ``have been told that the prior lockout rules are reinstated effective immediately.''
Earlier Friday, the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis granted the NFL's request for a temporary stay of the injunction lifting the 45-day lockout. Arguments will be heard on whether that order from a federal judge in Minnesota should be overturned altogether.
