Childress: No plans for Favre MRI

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.
