NFL Could Rule This Week on Jets For Injury Reports

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — The NFL hopes to rule this week on the New York Jets' failure to report an injury to Brett Favre last season.

Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league was conducting interviews on the issue Monday. He hopes a decision will be made this week on how the Jets will be punished. He spoke Monday before the night game between the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills.

Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum said last Thursday his team should have included Favre's torn biceps tendon on mandatory weekly injury reports over the final third of last season. Favre is now with the Minnesota Vikings.

Past violations of that nature usually have resulted in fines.
