NEW YORK (AP) - Brett Favre will be fined but not suspended for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy after the league's investigation into allegations he sent inappropriate messages and lewd photos to a former New York Jets game hostess, The Associated Press has learned.

A person familiar with the decision says the league plans to announce its decision within the next 48 hours. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the NFL had not yet released its decision.

The person did not specify what the league found in its investigation.

 The punishment was first reported by Fox Sports' Jay Glazer.

Favre allegedly sent the messages and photos to Jenn Sterger two years ago when they were both with the Jets in 2008. The allegations against the 41-year-old Minnesota Vikings quarterback surfaced in October on the website Deadspin.
