Brett Favre Injury Update: QB Likely Game-Time Decision With Tendinitis
"It will be right up to then," Childress said after Friday's practice. "I can't look into a crystal ball and see how he wakes up tomorrow. He could wake up with the gout tomorrow morning."
Childress is right: You never know. Favre could wake up with the gout tomorrow. Or with smallpox. Or he could get bit by a rabid dog.
But I'll go ahead and say it now: Favre is playing on Sunday.
Favre hasn't missed a game since he became the Packers' starting quarterback in 1992, and he's not missing this game against the Cowboys, either. He didn't come back to the NFL this season so that he could sit out the first time his elbow started to hurt. Say what you will about Favre, but he didn't get to where he is by lacking in toughness.
Childress said Favre looked "OK," at practice on Friday. OK will be plenty good enough to make his 314th consecutive start on Sunday.
The Vikings and Cowboys take equally disappointing and perplexing 1-3 records into Sunday's game at Mall of America Field. LeCharles Bentley breaks down that key matchup in this version of Two-a-Days.
