NY Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum says team chose to play injured Brett Favre.
Update: The league is "looking into'' the Jets not listing Favre on the injury report. The team could get fined between $10,000 and $25,000.
Responding to comments made by Brett Favre on Wednesday that the Jets knew he was playing with a torn biceps tendon in his throwing shoulder and advised him to continue to play anyway, Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum confirmed Thursday morning that that was indeed the situation.
Tannenbaum, talking to reporters, said that the decision to allow Favre to continue to play was because the organization felt he gave them the best chance to win. The injury was discovered with four or five weeks remaining in the season but Favre was never on the Jets' injury report. Tannenbaum took the blame for that and spoke to league executive vice president of football operations Ray Anderson Thursday morning and the team may be fined.
