The NFL says its launching an investigation into Favre's recent scandal. As I dished on Friday, Favre allegedly sent inappropriate text messaged and nude pics, to former Jets employee Jenn Sterger, while he was playing for New York back in 2008.
Yesterday, ESPN reported that, in addition to Sterger, the NFL wants to possible interview two massage therapists who are contracted by the Jets and allegedly received the same type of messages from Favre.
On Friday, a NFL spokesperson said the leagues was "reviewing the matter".
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell confirmed that the league is looking into the allegations.
"We are going through that and we are making sure we understand all the facts," Goodell said at halftime of the Chargers-Raiders game.
According to ESPN the league's investigation could wrap up in four to six days. And there is a good chance that Favre could face suspension under the NFL's personal conduct policy.
Favre's Vikings are set to play in New York against the Jets tonight.
According to inside sources, the 41 year old, has apologized to his teammates for being a distraction and told them he is prepared to play "lights out tonight".
Favre also told ESPN, "My main focus is the New York Jets, they are a tough team; as good as they are that has been my focus. I hate in any way if this has been a distraction as I said Thursday -- we are here focused on trying to beat the Jets."
When asked about the accuracy of the reports, Favre told ESPN, "That will take its course."
Meanwhile Sterger's manager released a statement to answer questions on whether his client has gotten a lawyer.
"We're looking at all our options right now and our only concern is what's in Jenn's best interest," Phil Reese said.
