Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress says Brett Favre is
”sore” but has no plans to get an MRI on his throwing shoulder
and should be ready to play against Green Bay on Sunday.
ESPN reported on Monday that Favre expected to have an MRI on
his right shoulder after experiencing pain Saturday. But Childress
says team trainers spoke to Favre on Monday and didn’t think he
would need the test. Favre had surgery on his torn biceps in 2009
before joining the Vikings.
Favre made his 294th consecutive regular season start on Sunday
against the Bears, extending his NFL record. He completed 18 of 31
passes for 170 yards and a touchdown in the 27-13 loss. He also
threw three interceptions, one that came on a tipped ball and two
others after Vikings receivers slipped and fell down.
