Report: NFLPA demands return of locked-out officials

Add another party to the list of those wishing for the return of full-time officials to the NFL: NFL players themselves.

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports in two tweets that the NFL Players Association has sent a letter to the league demanding the return of the officials locked out by the NFL after contract negotiations stalled. The letter cites player safety as a primary concern, while the NFL has responded that the NFLPA can send a medical officer to meet with replacement refs.

The league is using replacement officials for the opening weekend of games and will presumably continue to do so until the contract dispute is resolved.
