Last week, Vikings quarterback Brett Favre landed on the injury report with a foot problem. (Damned polio.)
This week, Favre’s maladies have tripled.
He appears on the Week Five Wednesday injury report with a foot, ankle, and knee injury. Favre was a limited participant in practice due to this trifecta of lower-leg problems.
The Vikings play the Rams on Sunday.
Guard Steve Hutchinson (back) did not practice. Receiver Darius Reynaud, who missed Monday night’s game with a hamstring injury, also missed practice, but with the designation “not injury related.” Defensive end Ray Edwards (hamstring) missed practice, too.
Linebacker Erin Henderson (calf) and cornerback Cedric Griffin (hand) participated on a limited basis.
Back to Favre, the proliferation of injuries could eventually result in a list of bumps and bruises that will mesh with the one we suggested several weeks ago: “arm, ribs, wrist, hand, finger, ankles, head, shoulder,
knees, toes, back, front, groin, taint, swine flu, polio, lupus.”
