Favre's status for Monday unclear
Brett Favre has confided that he may not be able to play against the New York Giants on Monday despite the game’s postponement, the New York Post reported Sunday.
The Post has learned that Favre texted a USA Today reporter that he doubts he will be able to play against the Giants, thus ending his NFL-record 297 consecutive starts streak.
“I don't think it will be 2 bad,” Favre wrote, according to the report. “'U know what I kinda look forward to just chillin for a change.”
The Vikings-Giants game was delayed 30 hours -- first after the Giants’ plane could not land in Minneapolis, followed by the collapse of the Metrodome’s roof Sunday morning after more than a foot of snow fell on the Twin Cities.
Favre is recuperating from a severe sprain in his throwing shoulder that knocked him out of action last week against the Buffalo Bills. The 41-year-old gunslinger has been unable to throw in practice all week and remains a question mark officially as to whether he can play against the Giants.
