|Goodell: Favre, League Official to Meet Next Week
|SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says a league official will meet with Brett Favre next week as part of an investigation into allegations the quarterback sent racy e-mails and lewd photos to a Jets game hostess in 2008 when he played for New York.
Goodell made his comments Saturday during a sideline interview with NBC at the Western Michigan-Notre Dame game, which he was attending. The commissioner said someone "from our staff" would meet with the Vikings quarterback and three-time league MVP.
On Tuesday, Goodell said he had no plans to meet with Favre himself, but added that it's something that he would do if it was warranted.
Favre has been listed as questionable by Minnesota for Sunday's game against Dallas with tendinitis in his right elbow. He has started a record 289 straight games.
