Multiple teams have denied their players access to the organizations' training facilities Thursday, following Judge Susan Richard Nelson's ruling that the lockout should be immediately lifted, according to multiple published reports.

Titans OG Jake Scott, who it also the teams player representative, was one of several Titans' players who was turned away Thursday morning, PFW Titans correspondent Jim Wyatt of The (Nashville) Tennessean reported Thursday on Twitter. According to The Tennessean, the Titans had set up a barricade of portable lockers and boxes to ostensibly prevent entry into the weight room.

Redskins LB Lorenzo Alexander and C Casey Rabach were both denied access to Redskins Park and player representative Vonnie Holliday was told that the doors would remain closed, according to The Washington Post.

Also, TE Greg Olsen and PK Robbie Gould were among Bears players denied access to the club's weight room on Thursday morning, according to multiple media outlest.

The league has since issued a statement, which permits all clubs to open their facilities tomorrow morning, pending a request for a stay from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.
