NFL Referees Could Be Back As Soon As This Weekend

The replacement officials the NFL has been using in the midst of the lockout of the NFL Referees Association did a passable job in week one. While that could have given the league leverage in the situation, what happened in weeks two or three made it clear that the league needs to get the regular officials on the field and fast.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen is reporting that both sides have made concessions and that the lockout could be over soon. Not only that, both sides have discussed the possibility of the regular officials returning to games this week.
