Giants will close weight room pending clarification from court


As it turns out, the New York Giants won’t be keeping their weight room open to players in the wake of the ruling lifting the lockout.

Despite the fact that defensive lineman Chris Canty was permitted to work out on his own Tuesday, team spokesman Pat Hanlon said (via Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger) that no lifting will be permitted on Wednesday.

“We have decided that our workout and training rooms will be closed until we get clarification from the pending challenges to the court’s decision,” Hanlon said in an e-mail to reporters.

Players will be allowed to enter the team’s facility. It remains to be seen whether any players try to do so.

Clarification regarding the order lifting the lockout, including whether the ruling will be stayed pending appeal, could come as soon as Wednesday.
