HBO's Hard Knocks debuts Tuesday night at 10 p.m. ET. Although we're just over an hour from the start of a new season, HBO is reportedly still editing the season's first episode.

That's right, with just one hour until the show is supposed to air, the network is still working on the final product. In a brief interview with HBO Sports Executive Vice President Peter Nelson, Daryl Ruiter of 92.3 the Fan, revealed the show's editors take their job up to the last minute.

That means a breaking news story from earlier this afternoon could find its way into the episode. Rookie wide receiver Antonio Callaway was cited for possession of marijuana.

According to Ruiter, that news story could make the show's first episode.

Callaway had been doing extremely well with the Browns. They named him a starting wide receiver earlier this week.

The former Florida standout has the talent of a first-round pick, but off-field issues caused him to drop to the fourth round.
