KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- While some NFL players are showing up at team facilities, union leaders for the Kansas City Chiefs asked their teammates to stay away.

They appeared to be honoring that request. By 11 a.m. Tuesday, no players had appeared at Chiefs headquarters. Rudy Niswanger, the player representative for the former union, says the suggestion was for players to let the dust settle a bit. On Monday, U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson lifted the lockout after 45 days. Appeals are pending. iswanger says the players want to give the Chiefs time to igure things out "before we showed up and put a trainer, manager, or coach in an awkward situation they were not prepared for."
