The league said Friday that evidence shows the Patriots used underinflated footballs during the first half of the AFC championship game Sunday night against the Indianapolis Colts.

It issued a statement that the Patriots have pledged full cooperation and have given the league information it requested and made personnel available upon request. Quarterback Tom Brady said Thursday afternoon he had not been contacted at that point.

The NFL says it expects full cooperation from other clubs and has hired an investigatory company to help in reviewing electronic and video information.

The league also said when it is able to come to conclusions, they will be shared publicly.
