NFL Week 7 Rumors: Shawne Merriman, Brett Favre, Michael Vick and More

Brett Favre finally met with the league on Tuesday to discuss allegations that the 41 year old gunslinger sent suggestive text messages and lewd photographs to Jenn Sterger when she was working for the Jets.

Favre called the investigation a league matter and predictably has no comment on the matter.

In Wednesday's media session, the topic arose repeatedly but Favre simply answered, “That’s a league issue, that I just have to leave at that.”

Meanwhile, Sterger has yet to comment on the matter, only offering statements via her manager—Phil Reese.

"We currently have an ongoing dialogue with the league. Jenn is currently considering all her options. It could be she talks. It could be she does nothing. We just don't know yet,'' said Reese.

Most analysts have stated that Favre will avoid punishment if Sterger remains mum on the subject.

In non-Favre related news, Shawne Merriman was placed on the injured reserve list and has likely played his last game as a Charger, while Michael Vick was named the back-up after watching Kevin Kolb throw for 326 yards and three touchdowns in a 31-17 win over the Falcons.

For details on all the rumors swirling around the league as well as an updated injury report, read on.
