Like most other teams in the NFL, a handful of Dallas Cowboys have showed up at team headquarters today, a day after Judge Susan Richard Nelson granted the players’ request for an injunction to lift the lockout.
The league has appealed, but for now, Cowboys players are trickling in and out of Valley Ranch, where reporters have staked out the players’ parking lot. Per ESPN Dallas, backup quarterback Stephen McGee, offensive tackle Sam Young, backup guard/center Phil Costa, fullback Chris Gronkowski, and receiver Miles Austin have all shown up and subsequently left Valley Ranch this morning.
Reporters caught up with Gronkowski at a nearby Gold’s Gym, where he said that, while they were allowed into team headquarters, players were prohibited from working out at team facilities.
The NFL has since released a statement confirming that players would not be allowed to work out at team facilities until some clarification on Judge Nelson’s ruling is handed down.
"Players are being treated with courtesy and respect at club facilities,” the statement says. “We do not believe it is appropriate for football activities to take place until there are further rulings from the court. Under the last set of proposals made to the NFLPA, teams wouldn't even be into offseason programs yet.”
