Amid allegations that the Jets failed to list Brett Favre on injury reports during the 2008 season, it has come to light that the team also failed to include defensive end Mark Gastineau on the same reports.

"It was my fault," said a member of the general manager's office. "There was a paperwork glitch that was an oversight on my part. As a result, Mark Gastineau was never taken off the Jets roster. Because he wasn't listed as active, we were required by NFL rules to list him on the injury report. Looking back, he should have been listed as doubtful. Really, really doubtful."
