Brett Favre Injury May Keep Him Out Of Practice; Expected To Play Sunday For Vikings

The shoulder injury suffered to Minnesota Vikings QB Brett Favre certainly looked bad and it was as it was enough to knock him out of the game. For Favre, though, it's just one more body part to add to the ever-growing injury report.

As usual, Favre's injury is not expected to keep him out of Sunday's game for the Vikings.

"He probably won't practice tomorrow, but we'll get a chance to see how he looks on Thursday and just try to make a determination based on that, you know, how things will look for Sunday," interim coach Leslie Frazier said Tuesday in a radio interview. "But we're all hoping that he'll be healthy enough to play."

Perhaps complicating the decision is that Tarvaris Jackson looked OK -- maybe good enough -- in relief of Fare. He completed 15-of-22 passes but for two touchdowns but three of those incompletions were interceptions.

As long as Favre can walk, he'll be out there. He has just four games remaining and then Favre is retiring so more than likely the Vikings will keep him out there, get through this season, and make a determination on Jackson's future.
