Sunday, August 3, 2008 (AP) -- Brett Favre will be reinstated and added to the Green Bay Packers' active roster Monday.
The NFL announced the move Sunday. Commissioner Roger Goodell had held off on granting Favre's request for reinstatement for nearly a week. He hoped Favre and the team could resolve their standoff. By reinstating Favre, Goodell is following through on a recent promise to force action.
The reinstatement will become effective at noon on Monday.
