Vikings quarterback Brett Favre, who was throwing passes to high-school kids as recently as four days ago, suited up with the men on Friday night.
And it was rough.
Favre completed one of four passes in two three-and-out drives against the Chiefs on Friday night.
Meanwhile, Tarvaris Jackson made a strong case to stick around, completing 12 of 15 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns.
So what if Jackson continues to outplay Favre between now and Week One? Surely, coach Brad Childress will explain that Favre hasn’t had the benefit of the offseason program or training camp.
Still, if Favre struggles to start the season, there’s a chance that his rotator cuff will start acting up.
