Favre "limited" again in practice

With one of the biggest regular-season games in recent memory coming in less than three days, the man at the center of the storm has yet to complete a full practice.

Vikings quarterback Brett Favre has a foot injury, and he has been only a limited participant each of the past two days of practice.

Other Vikings were limited as well on Friday:  cornerback Cedric Griffin (hand), linebacker E.J. Henderson (shoulder), linebacker Erin
Henderson (calf), tight end Jim Kleinsasser (hand), running back Naufahu Tahi (back).

Guard Steve Hutchinson (back) and receiver Darius Reynaud (hamstring) missed practice on Friday.  Coach Brad Childress said that Hutchinson is simply being rested, and that Hutchinson will most likely play against the Packers.

The various labels will be applied to the Vikings players on Saturday, given that the game starts a day later than the other Week Four action.

    Isn’t this usually when some jackass comes in and says some unintelligible thing about Favre being a “hawg for life”?

  6. Adam-Chris Scheftersen says: Oct 2, 2009 10:49 PM

    I don’t know why I’m complaining. At least we don’t have that annoying Fart/Favre guy anymore.

    These haiku’s are a tribute to the site FavreHaiku.com. A commenter left a link to the site and contributed some of his creations at PFT a couple of days ago, as did a few other people, including yours truly, the greatest poet of all time. That is what you are missing.
    That is FavreHaiku.com.

    I assumed limited referred to his precarious mental state.
    Not the most stable of people.
    When he has to go away for real, it could get interesting.

    Yeah, a pair of chromosomes and parents that weren’t related.

    Brett Favre destroys
    Those that doubt
    Or he’ll throw 5 ints
    Is this a true limerick?
    No.
    But do you care?
    No.
    Because if I say “Brett Favre,”
    You’ll read
    Because you can’t stop
    Brett
    Favre
    Brett
    Favre
    And so on…

    He will play and the vikings will win!

    The Green Bay hero
    Now they call him backstabber

    I think the bad poetry is an attempt to run with a haiku that was kinda-sorta trendy last off-season on this site. The reason you saw so many entries? He probably treated it like a telemarketing ordeal….keep digging deep and eventually one may be respectable. Unfortunately, this time neither rang true.

    I think they’re trying to get their haiku on!?
    Anyhoo. ————————————————————————-
    Fan_Of_Four: You were saying in another post how “The Packers got the worst offensive line in the league”.
    And that the way Rodgers has been getting crushed is like some trailer park whore’s who’s been getting smacked around on a C.O.P.S show.
    Hey, all that is good smack talk and all, but have you noticed the pounding and the sacks your “Vaunted” offensive line is giving up?
    The last count was 9 sacks and numerous hits.
    ————————————————————————
    I’ll say this about Rodgers, his “young” body can take hits at this point of the season.
    But your Q.B. doesn’t seem to be in good shape at this point.
    And it can only get worse for him…

    Wow. Just Wow. Take note of this. This is the first and probably only time ever that I actually agree with JimmySmith. If that is poetry you need to take a class or something.

  22. Bob Nelson says: Oct 3, 2009 5:19 AM

    Mr. Florio, it takes 2 teams for a game.
    Perhaps by Monday you will mention the other team involved in “one of the biggest regular season games in recent memory”.

  23. RagnarHater24 says: Oct 3, 2009 6:49 AM

    Once again Chilly is making another delusional attempt to try and be Belicheck with the injury report…..Or Andy Reid or Bill Parcells or the guy we should have at the helm…Mike Tomlin.

  24. Calistin says: Oct 3, 2009 7:39 AM

    Relax, it’s only his swollen ego. Hopefully it returns to normal before gametime.

  25. SaintsBucsPanthersSUKK says: Oct 3, 2009 9:38 AM

    Angry Vikings fans
    Favre will surely disappoint
    Just ask New York Jets

    Brett Favre mania

    Old man wants revenge

    @SaintsBucsPanthersSUKK
    Okay, i think we get the point. This is a football news/fiction and comment site, not a coffee house.

  28. JimmySmith says: Oct 3, 2009 11:31 AM

    Here, let me try one, its my first attempt
    Viking fans hope
    for a trophy in their trophy case
    Fat Chance with Mr. Noodle
    I will admit, I already know the Vikings don’t even own a trophy case. You are welcome to come over to Green Bay to see what one looks like

  29. footballrulz says: Oct 3, 2009 11:34 AM

    No way Favre doesn’t play. Wasted space. He’s waited too long for this. Now, whether he plays the whole game……..

  30. SaintsBucsPanthersSUKK says: Oct 3, 2009 12:11 PM

    Template for a haiku:
    1st line: 5 syllables
    2nd line: 7 syllables
    3rd line: 5 syllables
    It’s a Japanese thing.
    Alteration to JimmySmith attempt:
    The Vikings fans hope
    For a trophy in their case
    Fat chance with Brett Favre

  31. NoKoolaidCowboy says: Oct 3, 2009 12:42 PM

    Vikes just don’t want to come out and admit BretT is older. He needs more time to recover than the younger guys. No shame in that. They rolled the dice and are hoping he can continue to pull victories out for them with the goal of getting to the big dance.
    Rest those weary bones Brett. You’re going to need it. The season has only started.

  32. Wonderlic---myballs says: Oct 4, 2009 2:46 AM

    A counterpunch haiku from Brett Favre to all the stupid asses haiku’n him to death:
    Open mouth widely
    Stick out tongue unzipper bluejeans
    Lick like an ice cream
