Brett Favre Inactive: Injury Finally Ends Legendary Starting Streak
Brett Favre inactive is dominating the sports headlines this hour with news that the Vikings' quarterback will be out of action Monday night against the New York Giants.
After starting a record-setting 297 consecutive regular season games, Favre's shoulder injury will prevent him from suiting up for the first time since 1992.
ESPN first reported Favre would be inactive for the game.
Tarvaris Jackson will make his first start in nearly two seasons for the Vikings in front of a packed house at Ford Field.
With just three games remaining on the schedule after tonight, it seems possible Favre might in fact have taken his final snap in the NFL.
The time to return for a curtain call appears to have come and gone.
Favre traveled to Detroit with the Vikings yesterday, but his teammates seemed doubtful he would be able to play.
He also sent text messages to a USA Today reporter and ESPN's Ed Werder saying he would not play.
Werder is reporting Favre has told friends he would like to be placed on injured reserve to obtain his $1 million bonus.
It looks like his luck has finally run out.
