Favre sits out practice; hoping to decide by Friday if he will play Sunday

The injury that knocked Brett Favre out of last Sunday’s win over the Bills in just a few plays may keep him out of the lineup Sunday when the Vikings try to keep their playoff hopes alive against the Giants. The quarterback hopes to make a decision by Friday on if he will play or not.

Favre did not practice Wednesday as the Vikings started preparing for the Giants. He sprained the SC joint in his right shoulder on a crushing hit by Bills linebacker Arthur Moats last week and missed most of the game.

If Favre cannot play, his NFL record for consecutive starts would end at 297 regular season games. Favre says he isn’t concerned about keeping the streak intact. He says “the most important streak right now is we’ve won two in a row.” Interim coach Leslie Frazier says the streak will not factor into the decision.

    How ironic it would be if “the streak” is ultimately broken by a league suspension for inappropriate texting. “Shoulder injury” sounds so much more noble than “sexual inappropriateness”.

      You arent gonna jump of a cliff are ya? lol!

      I see Cheech missed practice again because of a migrane, so much for having that figured out. I hope Webb gets healed up for Giants game, Vikes are gonna need all the weapons they can get I’m afraid.

        Don’t be afraid, johnny. Everything will be OK.

        Krug’s right. If we still have playoff hopes, I have hopes of getting back into the league. I vote not to use that word any more this year.
