The NFL released its first injury report of the season today (all together now: YEEEEEEEEEEEAAH !) and while there's not a ton of surprising news, per se, there is something that we should get used to seeing -- "Brett Favre (ankle)."
Favre was listed despite having full participation in practice and given his state of health, it's unlikely he won't be on that list most every week that he plays (which would, given his track record, seem like about 16 times, not counting the postseason).
Also listed for the Vikings are Toby Gerhart (knee), Cedric Griffin (knee), Jamarca Sanford (ankle) and John Sullivan (calf), who all had limited participation in practice, and Chris Cook (knee) and Jimmy Kennedy (knee) who didn't practice.
The Saints included Marques Colston (kidney), Jimmy Graham (ankle) and Pierson Prioleau (knee) as those who had full participation, Tracy Porter (knee), Zach Strief (knee) and Jonathan Vilma (groin) as limited and Stanley Arnoux (ankle) and Chris Ivory (knee) as those that didn't practice.
So, yeah, the point being is that Favre's listed, but he's probably fine and we know that football is truly here when Favre is listed on an injury report.
