ESPN is reporting that the NFL is looking into comments quarterback Brett Favre made Wednesday about his arm injury late last season when he played for the New York Jets.

Favre was not listed on the injury report last season, ESPN reported, but he acknowledged Wednesday that he had an MRI that determined he had a torn biceps tendon. Teams are subject to fines when they are not forthright on their injury reports.

Favre did not miss any games but he said the team was aware of his injury.

Here is ESPN's report.

We're heading to the locker room for media access and we'll have more reaction to Bobby Wade's release later.

Update: A league spokesman has confirmed to the Star Tribune that the NFL is looking into the situation regarding Favre's comments.
