UPDATED 2:45 p.m. ET: OK, so HGH testing might not come quite as early as we orginally thought.
As CBSSports.com's Mike Freeman reports, the two sides have agreed to testing but not to when that testing will start.
"We have an agreement to test for HGH," union spokesman George Atallah told Freeman. "What we don't have an agreement on is the process and the protocol to implement the test."
On Thursday, CBSSports.com’s Mike Freeman reported that leaders of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee had called for a meeting between the NFL and the NFLPA to update the government on the status of HGH testing.
Sounds like that bit of action has led to a major development in the world of NFL drug testing.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello tweeted Friday that the NFL and the NFLPA will begin human growth hormone testing as soon as possible. He later told Freeman that the testing will begin as early as one week from today.
It is a long time coming.
