Even with an extra two days, Brett Favre likely will not play on Tuesday night against the Eagles.

PFW correspondent and Minnesota Star Tribune writer Judd Zulgad reported that Favre has yet to pass the first part of his concussion test and is still doubtful for Tuesday.

Favre was upgraded from 'out' with a sprained right shoulder to 'questionable' in Week 15 and started against the Bears, but left the game after being sacked by DE Corey Wootton.

On the bright side, the Vikings should get RB Adrian Peterson back. Peterson said he will play Tuesday after missing Week 15 with a thigh bruise.

The way we see it

With Favre, nothing is out of the question, although this year's concussion mandates will make it difficult for the iron man to make another miraculous return to the field. It makes you wonder how many games he may have missed throughout his career if the concussion rules came into play before this year. Rookie Joe Webb will likely start.

Having Peterson should help the Vikes try and keep Michael Vick and the Eagles off the field as they play for pride.

Fantasy Spin

Owners who are pinning their fantasy championship hopes on Peterson should feel comfortable with him playing. But without much of a passing game, Peterson may not be able to get his typical production.
