The Vikings have updated QB Brett Favre’s status for tonight’s game from “Out” to “Questionable.” Favre will try to throw about two hours prior to kickoff and then a final determination will be made on if he can play. If Favre is able to play in the game, it is not known if he would start or be in a backup role.
The Vikings have notified both the NFL and the Chicago Bears of the update.
“Brett Favre attempted to throw the football two days ago and was unable to, due to pain in the SC joint and residual numbness from a brachial plexus injury,” Vikings Head Athletic Trainer Eric Sugarman said. “He delcard himself out at that time. He woke up this morning feeling much improved. His symptoms and function have improved dramatically over the past 24 hours. In fairness to him and his team, he would like to be given the opportunity to play tonight if physically able.”
