According to Adam Schefter and Chris Mortenson of ESPN, the NFL and the locked out officials (NFLRA) have come to an agreement.
Here is the tweet:
As @mortreport is reporting, an agreement between NFL and NFLRA is at hand and both sides will work to have officials working this weekend.

This comes on the heels of the Monday Night Football controversy when it appeared the replacement officials made a horrible call, basically screwing the Green Bay Packers out of a victory.
Many wondered if the media storm created by the incident would force the NFL’s hand. While we don’t yet know how much each side caved, it is apparent that what happened earlier this week likely moved things along.
Now we can get back to complaining about the regular officials.
