It's been a year of injuries and turmoil for Brett Favre. And it just got a bit more painful.
Early in the first quarter of the Minnesota Vikings' game today against the Buffalo Bills, Favre moved around the pocket to find some throwing room and was hit hard from behind by Bills linebacker Arthur Moats. His pass came out wobbly and was intercepted by Drayton Florence, but the more important note is that Favre was driven to the turf and hit his shoulder hard on the ground.
Favre has since left the game, and was replaced by Tarvaris Jackson. His return to the game against the Bills is questionable, but, well, he's still Brett Favre. No quarterback in NFL history has played in more consecutive games, or through more injuries, and nothing about Favre's resilience surprises at this point. Even this shoulder injury, which looked particularly painful on replay, might not slow him down or knock him out.
More amusingly, though, if Favre's career is done after this game, his last pass for each of the three NFL teams he has played for will be an interception. That's consistency.
