VIDEO: Brett Favre Hit Hard, Sustains Shoulder Injury

Forget, for a moment, that Brett Favre has been one of the hardiest quarterbacks in NFL history, and forget that "Brett Favre injury" has often been merely a prelude to "Brett Favre playing hurt" for the duration of his Hall of Fame career. Instead, just consider that the guy getting hit in this video is 41 and a grandfather.

That's the hard hit Albert Moats laid on Brett Favre in today's Vikings-Bills game, and it produced a Brett Favre injury that appears likely to sideline for today's game, and perhaps more. Favre's left the game with a shoulder injury, and his return is questionable.

For Favre, whose consecutive starts streak is the stuff of legend, an injury that might threaten his ability to play next week might also be fodder for retirement talk. But that's not exactly music to Vikings fans' ears: though Favre has been inconsistent all season, the alternative for the Vikes is Tarvaris Jackson — who entered today's game in relief of Favre and promptly threw an interception.

So will Favre's shoulder injury prove to be the exception to the rule? We'll have to wait to know for sure, but the bet here is that we may well have seen the last of Brett Favre.
