BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns coach Eric Mangini said he has not been contacted by the NFL in its investigation about a possible injury-report cover up while he was with the New York Jets.
On Thursday, Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum admitted the team should have disclosed Brett Favre's torn biceps tendon on mandatory weekly injury reports over the final third of last season. Mangini, who was fired by New York in December, said he has always followed league rules "in the strictest fashion" when filling out the report.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league is in the preliminary stages of its investigation regarding how the Jets handled Favre's injury. The Jets and Mangini could face possible discipline if they are found to have violated league rules.
