UPDATE 2:15 p.m. ET: Ed Werder is reporting that Favre and his teammates believe the streak will end tonight. If the streak ends, it's likely that we've already seen the final play of Favre's career.
It’s against international law for a sports media outlet to go more than 24 hours without a new Brett Favre story. So, here’s the latest out of Minnesota, err, Detroit: Favre is still skeptical that he’ll be able to extend his consecutive starts streak to 298. On Monday morning, his head coach sounded only slightly less skeptical.
Leslie Frazier was somewhat optimistic about Favre’s chances in a conference call Sunday. He said the extra 30 or so hours of recovery/prep time that the snowstorm and Metrodome roof collapse afforded Favre would be helpful. But with roughly half of those hours now gone, Frazier’s optimism seems to have waned a bit.
Asked what Favre’s status is for the Giants game (kickoff 7:20 ET), Frazier replied, "Doubtful, but sometimes you never know with him."
Tarvaris Jackson took virtually all of the reps in practice this week. Still, expect to see Favre test his injured shoulder in pregame warmups. The Vikings must declare their eight inactive players 90 minutes before kickoff.
And because this awesome footage can't be viewed enough, here's a reminder as to why Favre and the Vikings got a 30-hour extension on the game:
