Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre is listed as questionable on the injury report for Sunday's NFL home game against the New York Giants
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre, who hasn't been able to throw a proper pass in practice this week, is listed as questionable on the injury report for Sunday's home game against the New York Giants.
Favre, who has started a league-record 297 consecutive regular-season games, did minimal work in practice Friday, making a few soft tosses to test a sprained joint in his throwing shoulder.
Interim coach Leslie Frazier said the 41-year-old will have to show the team he can make all the throws during a pregame workout Sunday to get clearance to play.
"We would have to see him make some of the throws he'd have to make in the game, and he understands that," Frazier said. "So, we'll take a look on Sunday morning and see."
Frazier said the only way Favre will play is if he can protect himself, make all the throws and play the entire game. Giving him a snap or two at the beginning of the game to keep the streak going is not an option, he said.
Favre played two previous times this season after being listed as questionable on the injury report.
