BY foxsports • April 18, 2011

DeMaurice Smith, the NFL Players Association executive director, is expected to miss Tuesday's court-ordered labor negotiations to attend to a ''family medical emergency.''

NFLPA spokesman George Atallah posted Monday on his Twitter account that Smith would miss the third session of talks in Minneapolis.

''DeMaurice Smith will not attend tomorrow's sessions due to a family medical emergency. Thanks for respecting his personal privacy,'' Atallah posted.
