Favre gets different view working with Vikings’ receivers in practice

The Vikings have played the first two games with three healthy cornerbacks, but even they are not desperate enough to turn to Brett Favre for help.

According to Star Tribune's Judd Zulgad, who watched individual drills in Thursday’s practice, Favre lined up for a few snaps as a defensive back — but not to help that side of the ball.

Instead, Favre appeared to be getting a different view of how his wide receivers were running routes in an attempt to help get on the same page as them. The Vikings’ passing offense has been limited in two games, especially at receiver.

Wide receivers have accounted for only 13 of the team’s 37 pass completions this season. All three of Favre’s interceptions were passes intended for WRs Percy Harvin and Bernard Berrian on Sunday.

Favre was seen working closely with Harvin the most during the group portion of practice but also with Berrian.
