EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (CBS/AP) Brett Favre has probably gotten used to the spotlight over his 20-year NFL career, but it's probably never felt quite so hot under those lights as it has the past few weeks.

Today, Favre is scheduled to meet behind closed doors with the NFL over allegations that he sent x-rated photos and inviting text messages and voicemails to Jenn Sterger, a female employee of the New York Jets, back when both were with the franchise two years ago.

Sterger has not commented about the allegations, first reported on Gawker blog Deadspin.

The exact timing and location of the meeting were not publicly disclosed. The NFL declined comment, while the NFL Network reported it would take place Tuesday with a member of the league's security team.

Coach Brad Childress said Monday the Vikings won't have a role in the meeting, to his knowledge. He said it's not the team's responsibility.

Favre said Sunday he's "concerned about the next game" and that he will let the NFL's investigation "take its course."

With or without the 'sexting' scandal, Favre has not looked like the same spry, confident quarterback he was last year when the Vikings were undefeated and scoring plenty of points.

And depending on the outcome of today's meeting he may not be able to distract himself with "the next game" - Favre could be fined or suspended under the NFL's personal conduct policy - which would mean his flawless record of playing 289 straight games would be over in a (camera) flash.

Favre and the Vikings play his former team, the Packers, in Green Bay this Sunday.
