Brett Favre: Minnesota Vikings Quarterback Won't Play Tonight
Brett Favre is inactive, and will not be playing in tonight's game against the New York Giants.
ESPN and NFL.com have both reported the news. The Minnesota Vikings quarterback ends his record streak of 297 consecutive starts.
Favre was listed as questionable, and there were thoughts he could still be playing since the game was moved to Monday. The Metrodome's inflatable roof collapsed, causing the NFL to move the game to Ford Field in Detroit.
Favre sprained his shoulder against the Buffalo Bills, and hadn't thrown a pass all week during practice.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that Favre didn't throw any passes during Sunday's walkthrough and is listed as questionable on the team's injury report.
Interim coach Leslie Frazier said he wanted to see if Favre could make throws he would have to make in a game, and that a decision would be made based on what he saw in yesterday's practice.
Today's announcement also means Favre's career has also come to a sudden stop as well. Favre has said this year would be his last.
