Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre has apologized to his teammates for the fuss a scandal surrounding allegations he texted shots of his penis to a female reporter has caused.

Favre has yet to address the saga directly with the media, insisting only that the matter will "take its course," but he spoke to his Vikings pals on Monday morning in an effort to assure them he would not be distracted.

NFL officials are aggressively investigating allegations that Favre sent inappropriate messages and photos to former New York Jets employee Jenn Sterger when he was the team's quarterback in 2008.

A collection of the correspondence was posted on Deadspin.com on Thursday.

Sterger's manager released a statement on Monday to answer questions on whether his client has retained legal counsel. The statement reads, "We're looking at all our options right now and our only concern is what's in Jenn's best interest."

The manager, Phil Reese, insists his client did not provide Deadspin with any information.

Favre has told ESPN, "I hate in any way if this has been a distraction."
