DETROIT -- Has Brett Favre thrown his final NFL pass? That's a postgame question we'll have for Favre, who won't play Monday night against the New York Giants because of a sprained SC joint near his right shoulder.

The Vikings have three games remaining after tonight, and ESPN's Ed Werder reported the team is giving serious thought to placing him on injured reserve. Doing so would eliminate the spectacle of a 41-year-old quarterback trying to heal quickly enough to squeeze in one or two more starts before heading into retirement.
That decision wouldn't necessarily be up to Favre, but we'll see in a few hours if he thinks it's a possibility.
