With a few days until the first Sunday of the NFL season begins, it seems as if Brett Favre wasn't finished talking about the Jets.

The famed No. 4 spoke on Wednesday in a press conference, where he discussed his injuries with the Jets. He claimed that the team knew of his injuries, yet did not report them to the weekly injury list.

New York Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum has admitted to knowing about Farve's injury last season. He also admitted to realizing the potential damage that injury did to Favre and the potential problems not disclosing the injury may cause the Jets in the future.

Reportedly, Favre had torn his biceps during the season, which did require offseason surgery if he wanted to play for the Minnesota Vikings this season.

If punished, the Jets would be fined by the NFL for an undisclosed amount of cash.
