The NFL has assessed $125,000 in fines to the New York Jets and former coach Eric Mangini for violating the league’s rules on injury reporting with former quarterback Brett Favre last season.
The Jets failed to place Favre on the injury report during the final month of last season even though he had a torn biceps tendon. Teams are required to disclose an injury each week.
The Jets were fined $75,000, and Mangini and Jets president Mike Tannenbaum were fined $25,000 apiece.
Last week, Tannenbaum admitted the Jets should have listed Favre as “probable” on their injury reports.
