Report: NFL, Referees End Lockout, Regular Officials to Begin in Week 4 Starting With Thursday Night Game

The replacement refs may be gone soon to hopefully never return again.

Tara Sullivan from The Record tweeted that the regular refs will be back working on Thursday night for the Cleveland-Baltimore game. She also said that the regular NFL officials will be back for the full slate of Sunday games.

This comes as part of an eight-year-deal between the NFL and their referees.

See Sullivan’s string of tweets below.

 

 

 

 

 

While the NFL refs aren’t perfect, we can at least trust their experience — and we know that they haven’t been fired from the Lingerie League. Hopefully this means we’ll never see a play like this again.

Update: 12:03 a.m.

NFL.com’s Albert Breer has confirmed Sullivan’s report.
