According to FOXSports.com's Jay Glazer, the real referees and officials will be back for Week 4 of the NFL. THANK GOD!

Via Foxsports.com:

"The NFL and its locked-out officials agreed to terms on a new deal late Wednesday night which would put officials in place for this weekend’s games — including Thursday night's game — according to sources close to the situation.

According to the sources, the final sticking point related to the much-discussed pension plan, but that stalemate finally ended.

The sides are currently working on paperwork according to sources and at least half of the locked-out officials must approve the new deal, but sources said that is expected to be a formality.

Sources said the officials are expected to convene in Dallas on Friday to do things such as collect uniforms and gear."
