Would one day make difference for Favre?

By Kevin Seifert


Will an extra day of recovery be enough for Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre to extend his consecutive starts streak? We'll soon find out.

Favre, who has a sprained SC joint near his right shoulder, told ESPN's Ed Werder that he could not have played if the Vikings' game against the New York Giants had kicked off Sunday as scheduled. (Perhaps he hasn't had a bionic SC joint inserted yet.) The game location is now in limbo because of the collapse of the Metrodome roof, but we're assuming it will still take place Monday night -- somewhere.

At some point, we'll step back and take a look at what a bizarre capper this has been to one of the wildest seasons in the history of this franchise. But for now, we'll just track whether the collapse of a stadium roof will enter into the lexicon of FavreLegend.
