Speaking with reporters following his team’s practice at Winter Park on Wednesday, Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress said he didn’t plan to play QB Brett Favre on Friday night and also indicated that many of the starters will receive a rest during the team’s preseason finale against the Dallas Cowboys.
Childress cited one particular experience he’s had with starters playing in the preseason finale, telling the story of a starting center going down on the final play of the 1st series of the 4th preseason game and then missing the entire season. The Vikings head coach also has a history in Minnesota of resting most of his starters in the final preseason game.
“I think we’ll be able to get enough work out here,” Childress said when asked if Favre would play on Friday night. “Tomorrow we’ll do a couple of things with our starting group and I think through the week next week we’ll be okay. I just don’t see the upside of doing that (playing Favre) any further. I thought he made a nice jump from week one to week two and showed he’s got a good understanding of what we’re doing.”
