NFL players and owners break off talks

WASHINGTON (AP) - Negotiations to prevent an NFL lockout took a grim turn Wednesday with the cancellation of the second day of a planned two-day bargaining session.

There are just three weeks to go before the collective bargaining agreement expires on March 3.

Neither the NFL nor the player's union would comment.

The league did confirm that Commissioner Roger Goodell has canceled an owners' meeting scheduled for Tuesday in Philadelphia.

The collapse of the talks came as a surprise. The two sides got together Wednesday for the second time in five days, the previous negotiations taking place in Dallas on Saturday before the Super Bowl.
