Favre's Streak Could End This Week
Vikings quarterback Brett Favre has multiple fractures in his left ankle which could jeapordize his NFL record of consecutive games. The 41-year-old Favre had offseason surgery on the ankle, then reaggravated the injury in Sunday night’s game against the Green Bay Packers. Favre will not need surgery and is in a walking boot for now, but Vikings head coach Brad Childress has not ruled the quarterback out for this Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots. If Favre does not go this weekend, it would end his streak of 291 consecutive starts, which dates back to September 27, 1992. Favre wouldn’t need surgery and did not rule the future Hall-of-Famer out of the Vikes’ game against the New England Patriots this weekend. Favre suffered the injury when he threw one of his three interceptions in Sunday night’s 28-24 loss to his former team, the Green Bay Packers. With the injury, Favre’s record of consecutive games is in jeopardy. He has played in 291 straight contests.
