Brett Favre has serious pain in his right shoulder, according to ESPN's Ed Werder. The Vikings QB said after the team's 27-13 loss to the Bears that he felt a sharp pain in his throwing arm on Saturday and considered taking a pain killer, but chose not to. Favre said the injury did not impact his play in the game.
Favre was 18-of-31 for 170 yards, a TD and three interceptions in the loss to Chicago.
The injury is believed to be related to surgery that repaired a partially torn biceps tendon after the 2008 season.
The way we see it
Favre has been banged up all year, with his toe, ankle and now shoulder giving him problems. With his team sitting at 3-6, it may be time for the legendary QB to give up his consecutive games streak and give his body a rest.
