Vikings QB Favre to start against Bears

So maybe Brett Favre isn't quite done yet.

The Vikings said Favre will start Monday night's game against the Chicago Bears.

Favre threw before the game and will suit up at the University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium.

Favre didn't practice all week because of a sprained throwing shoulder. The injury kept Favre out of last week's loss to the New York Giants and ended his NFL-record straight of 297 straight regular-season starts.
