Erin Henderson Reports To Work After Lockout Temporarily Lifted

The NFL Lockout has been temporarily lifted, which technically means that players are allowed to use their team facilities once again. We've been hearing stories from across the NFL of players trying to get into their facility and being met with mixed results. You might be surprised at which member of the Vikings was the first to try and break the threshold. According to Judd Zulgad of the Star Tribune, reserve linebacker Erin Henderson was at the team facility this morning.

"I don't know what (the team is) going to say or not going to say," Henderson said. "I hope I'm not crossing any lines or making anybody upset. That's not what I'm here to do or try to do at all in any way, shape or form. If it does cause a rift then I'll take care of that later. But I'm just here trying to come to work like anybody else."

Word is that players are being let into the facilities, but are not allowed to use workout equipment. So I'm not quite sure what he's going to be doing there today. But hey, Football is (sort of) back!
