WASHINGTON (AP) - Lawyers from both sides of the NFL's labor dispute plan to work through the weekend, although not face-to-face, to try to resolve the differences that are preventing players from voting on the owner-approved proposal to end the lockout.
After the NFL Players Association decided not to vote Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, it's now possible the group won't make any decision until next week. It all depends on how long it takes to resolve the remaining differences.
So the NFL is stuck in a holding pattern. As it is, clubs already were told not to expect players to begin arriving at facilities Saturday, when owners hoped gates would open.
