Favre limited with elbow, ankle injuries

Earlier this week, Jason Whitlock of FOXSports.com predicted that, if the Vikings continue to lose games, quarterback Brett Favre eventually will put himself on injured reserve.

And if that strategy is indeed on the table, Favre and/or the Vikings have more evidence that would make the move plausible — Favre was limited in practice on Thursday with an ankle injury. 

Favre also has a right elbow injury, according to the official injury report.

On Wednesday, Favre fully participated in practice with an ankle injury.  There was no mention of a right elbow injury — and there was no limitation in practice — until after the window closed on trading for Chargers receiver Vincent Jackson.

Surely, that’s a coincidence.

    i don’t like a lot of the things favre has done in the last few years, but i still believe he is one tough son of a bitch. i think he’ll come hell or high water.

    I would never bet against Brett Favre but this isn’t going so well so far is it Brett?

  3. CookieFlash says: Sep 24, 2010 6:50 AM

    This is great!,First the implosion of the Jets now Favre is going to ruin the Vikings.
    My plan is going swimmingly!

  4. alewatcher says: Sep 24, 2010 6:54 AM

    Anything to keep the consecutive game started streak intact…if Favre goes to IR, the streak ends, but if he misses a game or two and comes back, the streak is broken.
    It’s all about His stats.

    Why even bother coming back dude, it’s just going into week 3…

  7. ercin13 says: Sep 24, 2010 7:00 AM

    has favre practiced at all this year? not counting practice with15 year olds.

  8. HandsofSweed says: Sep 24, 2010 7:01 AM

    The thing is, the Vikings will start to win some games and we’ll have to hear about Brett Favre being resurrected from the dead and acsending to heaven to sit at the right hand of God.
    Then, he will promptly roll right and uncork a horrible throw back across his body into the middle of the field into at least double coverage for an INT. You know, the same stupid mistake the guy made at age 22, age 27, age 31, age 36, age 37 and age 39.
    18 years in the NFL (or 19, whatever) and he is still very much the same QB as he was at the beginning. He could be a legit member of both the “best QB’s of all time” and a runaway #1 on the “most overrrated player in American sports history” lists. That’s his REAL legacy, folks.

  9. Bun McSticky says: Sep 24, 2010 7:05 AM

    You really are pushing that Whitlock article. Just a ‘friend’ helping out another ‘friend’ here, huh Florio? I’m sure Whitlock will reciprocate soon by mentioning a story of yours in one of his columns. You guys are such whores, but you already know this. Don’t think we don’t either as readers.

  10. marjo says: Sep 24, 2010 7:16 AM

    And the Favre excuse wagon is ready to start . . . NOW!
    Of course, the spin on the dismal start of the Vikings is going to be that injuries are killing them, especially the ones to Favre. How about this – the guy simply does not have it anymore.
    Can someone finally convince this guy to just go away.

  11. hardhead2 says: Sep 24, 2010 7:17 AM

    Now when has Brett been lees than 100% honest?
    Surely you’re not accusing Favre of taking advantage of the Vikes, are you? Or giving less than 100% to the team?

  12. JimmySmith says: Sep 24, 2010 7:18 AM

    Love the coincidence comment, getting rather snarky aren’t we?
    The Chargers did the Vikings a favor. The Vikings were quite willing to pull their pants all the way down to their ankles (an analogy that most of the Queerqueen fans can readily relate to) but San Diego was more interested in sticking to Jackson than sticking to the Vikings.
    The Vikings are going nowhere this year, with or without Jackson, its just getting the fans to come back to reality that will prove difficult.

  13. Favre's Hamartia says: Sep 24, 2010 7:23 AM

    They should add “bruised ego” and “tarnished legacy” to the injury report as well.
    When I first saw that patch the Vikings are wearing on their uniforms this year, I thought “how nice, they’re wearing it to commemorate their quarterback’s age.”
    I recently realized I was wrong, however.
    That patch doesn’t commemorate his age – it commemorates his 2010 QB rating.

  14. MACK DADDY says: Sep 24, 2010 7:25 AM

    He’ll quit after they lose to Detroit.

  15. Wipackman says: Sep 24, 2010 7:36 AM

    whew !!! I was wondering what Brett was up to ….perhaps they need a 1 hour special on TV to show his ” Motorcade ” to the Dr.’s office …..Who cares about this JERK

  16. DP says: Sep 24, 2010 7:38 AM

    Just another example of this idiots selfishness. If he wasn’t healthy, why did he come back? Now he’s going to play the old man injury card b/c the truth is he isn’t God and he can’t save this team. This way he’ll get paid and go on IR so he can’t be blamed when. Vikings deserve everything they get with this clown. Because of their malfeasance in managing a team (i.e. free agency, draft), they had to beg a broken down old man rather than rely on two other QB scrubs they had on the roster. Childress learned from fat Andy real nice. The fact they traded for Rosenfels and Tavaris is on the roster is a complete joke.

  17. alobar26 says: Sep 24, 2010 7:47 AM

    No, not a coincidence at all, Florio. It is part of the grand scheme you so clearly predicted last year that Favre would perform poorly and need an excuse. Remember how you were right on with that last year? So you should obviously stick with it. Go with what works.

  18. Ollie says: Sep 24, 2010 7:53 AM

    I am so sick of this whine bag!! He is already coming up with excuses as to why he is playing so poorly. Won’t go to camp with the team. Won’t say if he will play or not all year long to keep his name dominating the news. What an ego selfish individual he is.
    And three years ago I had more respect for him than anyone in the league. Today I hope he throws seven interceptions every game and gets benched. Of coarse he would walk off and quit before he let that happen.

  19. bigmetaldude says: Sep 24, 2010 7:56 AM

    Lame excuse is lame. Time to retire, Grandpa. This is coming fro. A diehard Vikings fan, by the way.

  20. zilla1126 says: Sep 24, 2010 7:58 AM

    I guess you are doing something right by pressing this continued thing against Farve setting up some sort of excuse for failure – I mean you are getting more and more page views…
    I don’t think I will be one of them anymore. What I get from this site is not worth seeing this smear campaign against a man who will go down as one of the best players of all time.
    And for what? For a little bit of money. There’s more to life than a little money, you know. Don’tcha know that? And here ya are, and it’s a beautiful day. Well. I just don’t understand it.

  21. JollyRoger says: Sep 24, 2010 8:00 AM

    Maybe this was discussed in the first post about Whitlock’s prediction, and I’m too lazy to look, but can players really just put themselves on injured reserve?

  22. irishgary says: Sep 24, 2010 8:01 AM

    And the excuses continue. It’s never gonna be his fault always something else. Go Away.

    Lions > Vikings this weekend.

  26. derrick thiele says: Sep 24, 2010 8:16 AM

    I don’t blame Favre for doing what he’s doing. He wasn’t sure if he wanted to come back. He’s old. He was convinced by his teammates that he was the missing piece. If they start 0-3 or 1-4 there isn’t much reason for him to stick around since they aren’t going to the playoffs.

  27. TXYoungGuns82 says: Sep 24, 2010 8:19 AM

    Did you see the games Florio? I would bet that Brett’s elbow and ankle aren’t the only parts of his body that are hurt. It looked like the Dolphins might have aggravated his fallopian tube as well… Just sayin’.

  28. Didier says: Sep 24, 2010 8:19 AM

    Before the season, I predicted Favre would throw more interceptions than touchdowns, and that he would not finish the season as the Vikings’ quarterback.
    He’s one of the all-time greats, but age creeps up on us all and one saw diminishing skills towards the end of last season.
    So far, he’s thrown more picks than TDs and I stand by my prediction that his consecutive games streak won’t survive the season.

  29. vikescry1 says: Sep 24, 2010 8:20 AM

    he’ll go on ir right before he plays the packers so that clay (qb killa) matthews doesn’t do it for him!

  30. megatron81 says: Sep 24, 2010 8:21 AM

    I wonder if he’s back on the painkillers. I love how everyone makes Fart sound like such a role model, so brave and inspirational. People seem to forget that it wasn’t too long ago that he a pill popping junkie. But that just gets swept under the rug.
    Hey Fart, you’re gonna need an I.V. of pure morpine pumped into ya after after Sunday. Van DenBosch is gonna get ya low and Suh is gonna rock ya high and Fart will finally be out of gas.

  31. JEsTerS says: Sep 24, 2010 8:31 AM

    Build up the excuses for him.

  32. Bwa Ha Ha says: Sep 24, 2010 8:32 AM

    He also has a bruised taint, but that is supposed to be off the record

  33. shiftyshellshocked says: Sep 24, 2010 8:32 AM

    Surely it’s not a coincidence that Favre has not missed a start in twenty years.

  34. MACHINE GUN IBIZA says: Sep 24, 2010 8:34 AM

    He’s just like a little kid out there. Thats assuming your average 14 year old is a duplicitous attention seeking greedy self centered whiner.
    Hell-maybe he really IS a kid out there!!

  35. tv says: Sep 24, 2010 8:35 AM

    Well it would be up to Lord FavRay to put himself on IR since he has Chilly’s gonads firmly in his grasp.
    But this just looks like another excuse for him to do poorly. If he continues to stink it will be blamed on injuries. If he rebounds then he is a hero (again).

    PEDs only carry you so far. Maybe he’s hit the chemical wall.

  40. mattgso says: Sep 24, 2010 8:51 AM

    Non-news. Teams use the injury report as a means for disinformation. His elbow may have been hurting before. It does raise an eyebrow when considering faver is announcing all his issues now to save a little face if the passing game continues to struggle.
    Also, it sure is interesting that the vikings did not list an injury when trying to entice a player into practice. Let’s remember that this the 2nd time it happened: When faver showed up, Rice was announced out, but not before.

  41. Ambrose says: Sep 24, 2010 8:52 AM

    After his attempt to manipulate the Packers failed, the primary motivation this guy had for coming back at all was the retention of the consecutive starting streak. He knows that is the least likely record to ever be broken, as long as Peyton misses a start. If that were to happen, Favre would hang it up faster than you could say “schism.”

  42. gwinn1952 says: Sep 24, 2010 8:56 AM

    Give it a rest. He may not have been throwing but if you read the Vikings Website he was playing a CB and helping the receivers with their routes. Now does that sound like a guy who has given up.

  43. Hauschild says: Sep 24, 2010 9:02 AM

  44. RAMROD says: Sep 24, 2010 9:05 AM

    Here you go again with the highly unlikely conspiracy theories..
    You just used Jason Whitlock’s predicted speculation as a source. How is it that you are considered a credible journalist?
    You probably believed the plane didn’t hit the Pentagon on 9/11..

  45. Profanity in ALL CAPS says: Sep 24, 2010 9:06 AM

  46. realitypolice says: Sep 24, 2010 9:09 AM

    Why in the world would the Vikings put Favre on injured reserve? There is absolutely no point to it. He’s not coming back next year, so what is there to “reserve” him for? Injured reserve is for players who won’t play this year but you want for next year.
    I don’t know if Favre’s contract is gauranteed, but if it isn’t, the Vikes could save whatever is left on his contract by cutting him whenever he decides he’s had enough.
    And why wouldn’t they? What do they owe him? They’ve paid him a ton of money to do whatever he wants. If he wants to bail on them after holding them hostage all pre-season, he should have to walk away without whatever money he didn’t earn.

  47. Fire Ted says: Sep 24, 2010 9:11 AM

  49. Calistin says: Sep 24, 2010 9:18 AM

    I’d be hurt too if an entire fanbase threw me under the bus.
    Too funny. Vikings turncoats at their best. Last year you guys couldn’t get enough of BrINT, now suddenly he’s the reason for all your woes? Try giving him someone who can catch the ball and some time to throw it.
    He missed camp last year and you defended him, he missed it this year and you’re condemning him. So which is it, does he need camp or not?
    Favre is a front runner and always has been. When the going gets tough tho, BrINT shines.

  53. Lurch says: Sep 24, 2010 9:28 AM

    When he was with the Jets … Mangenius and Tannebaum did not list his injuries … probably with the intention of hiding them from defensive players who would only try to make them worse.
    Then, after Brett left the Jets … he tattled on them … said he was hurting and probably shouldn’t have played (like, oh sure … he’d accept his benching thus, ruining his consecutive start string).
    The Commish then fined both Mangenius and Tanne over a hundred large each for being bad and breaking the rules.
    This just goes to show … Chilly ain’t takin’ no pay cuts. All injures – front and center.

  54. Kevin Vandevoorde says: Sep 24, 2010 9:28 AM

    Florio, I don’t always agree with you, but you always start interesting conversations.
    Vikings fans, join me in the chorus: “Leslie Frazier for head coach after the bye week.”
    Oh, and if we really feel like rolling the dice: “Tarvaris saves.”

    Yeah…because a team’s website never sugar coats anything. BrINT probably pulled him aside, slipped him a couple hundred and told him to quit picking off his passes in practice.
    No guarantees.

  65. rbais2 says: Sep 24, 2010 10:22 AM

    Ole Brett is doing nothing but laughing all the way to the bank! It’s totally wrong for one man to be able to skip training camp, especially 2 years in a row ( because he’s all that ) ! He took you guys for a ride! Bench him and take away one of his legacies. His untarnished starting record. He sure won’t like that and will take his ball and go home!

  72. Boudin says: Sep 24, 2010 11:09 AM

    LOL! Remember that one year when Vikings fans swallowed their pride (among other things) and embraced Brett Favre as one of their own?
    Remember?
    That was awesome.
    So now that he’s alienated all of the teams he’s played for, does he go into the HOF as a free agent?

  73. se18a29 says: Sep 24, 2010 11:13 AM

    Well, I see the anti-Favre moron clowns are out in force today. All the talk about missing camp. Get a clue douchbags, Rice is out, Cam and Hank are new, Barrian is worthless on any team, so how could Farve get his timing down with his receivers? Even Harvin has been out most of camp. That leaves ZIP experienced receivers that he would have been able to practice with.

    im not suprised they begged him to come back. considering last year. if love or hate him, he had an AMAZING year. bottom line is, in years past he has always said “i want to play” this year he “came back for the guys and this team and unfinished business” he felt obligated to come back. if you watch the first 2 games, you can see it on his face. He knows…

  76. JRG3 says: Sep 24, 2010 11:35 AM

    Then wouldnt it make sense for him to be in camp knowing Rice was out and he needed to get his timing down with the other WRs? BErrian is good, he’s probably just frustrated cuz favre sucks right now.

    The media need a black sheep team to from which to suck the life blood and the Vikings are a small market team. Don’t buy into the hype, flying under the radar isn’t so bad. It’s a constant quest for ratings so who is going to hate on a team like the Cowboys or Jets and risk upsetting the Golden Fan Base? Favre will be fine, will continue to start games, and the Vikings will come back to win the division and, ultimately, the Super Bowl.
    http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-films-sound-efx/09000d5d81ac0c9d/Sound-FX-Brett-Favre (Favre was miked during last week’s game against Miami).
    It’s time to EAT! Rally Vikings fans. Rally!

  79. Boudin says: Sep 24, 2010 11:47 AM

    Training camp isn’t just about getting your timing down with your receivers. What a majority of Vikings fans don’t realize (surprise!) us that it’s also about getting up to NFL speed and getting into game shape. Sure Brett is slightly out of synch with his receivers. That’s understandable for the reasons mentioned in the comments above. But the old man is obviously gassed and that is surely contributing to his poor performance.
    Just because he got away with skipping training camp last year means nothing. He’s a year older now and he spent the majority of this past offseason staying off his bad ankle. We’re seeing the negative effects of such actions now.

  80. Saints-America'sTeam says: Sep 24, 2010 11:52 AM

    Good point, Goombar2. I hadn’t considered that. I do agree that he won’t finish the season on the field…because he looks like a Snickers commercial out there, but he’s got the HOF to worry about now. So. What looks better, IR, retiring outright, or just be taken down and carried off the field with both his legs dragging. He looked like he was doing a Jesus impersonation when we played him. Perhaps Clay Matthews will finish him off…but it could be Suh, who knows.
    I too was a Farve fan for many years when he was a Packer. But something happened. He started to believe his press clippings. It went to his head. I’ve said it before and I mean it. I feel sorry for the Vikes fans. Yeah, they didn’t treat us fairly when we beat them…but they had such high expectations and it’s tough to see them dashed, we should know.
    The Vikings need a brilliant coach, not a Farve puppet…take a lesson from us…look for a Sean Payton clone. Then all the pieces will fall into place. I truly wish you luck.

    ___________________________________
    1) To free up a roster spot…if he’s done for the year…logical. You have to pull someone to make room for someone. You can no longer put a player on either PUP list once the season starts.
    2) The IR list also keeps prior contract terms in place, so other teams cannot tamper while he is still under a MN Vikings contractual agreement.
    3) I would absolutely LOVE to see the Vikes cut him…after they spent all that damn money on billboards begging the drama fag to come back over the last 2 years.
    Sage Rosenfels will never be a stud….IMO, but he’s somewhere watching all of this and laughing his ass off. I’m still sticking with a 7 & 9 record.

    Wow Florio. You sure have a boner for the Vikings injury report. Went thru the same crap last year with this. Give it a rest. And who the F*&K is Jason Whitlock?

    They should add “bruised ego” and “tarnished legacy” to the injury report as well.
    When I first saw that patch the Vikings are wearing on their uniforms this year, I thought “how nice, they’re wearing it to commemorate their quarterback’s age.”
    I recently realized I was wrong, however.
    That patch doesn’t commemorate his age – it commemorates his 2010 QB rating.

    He has to have some excuses in place before it gets too ugly!!! Favre is a HOF QB, but he is also acting like a clown! Sad way to end his career.

  85. Boudin says: Sep 24, 2010 12:27 PM

    And another thing!!!
    No way in Hell Brett punks out in what is clearly his last season ever. If the Vikings are out of contention in November, look for Brett to play out of his freaking mind in the last few games of his career. For one last time, he’ll just be having fun out there.
    You know I’m right.

  86. Bjorno says: Sep 24, 2010 12:39 PM

    Wow, all this talk of Favre being done is weird.
    I mean, doesn’t anyone take into consideration the fact that it took Favre 2-3 regular season games to get back into the groove last year, and that the only reason we won the first 2 games last year was because we were playing the Browns and the Lions instead of the Saints and the Dolphins (who I believe have a much better pass defense than they are given credit for.)
    Not to mention Favre is missing his favorite weapon.
    This is the same old man we saw last year, just with a different schedule.

  87. PackerFanforDecades says: Sep 24, 2010 1:11 PM

    Brett once played a bunch of games with a broken thumb on his throwing hand. So, if he wants to play the Lions, I’m sure he’ll find a way to play and keep his game streak alive.
    However, the last thing he needed was another missed day of practice. Wow. Imagine how his fellow team members feel about that. Imagine the lack of enthusiasm communicated by Tavaris’ body language as he was taking snaps at practice instead of Brett yesterday. That must have been a painful thing to watch.
    With that kind of team agony going on, makes me think that even if Brett does play well against Detroit and even if the Vikings can avoid the dozen men in the huddle thing, the team’s attitude is going to lose the game.

    @ DSC:
    Thanks!!
    Even with all their problems, I really can’t see the Vikings losing Sunday – the Lions haven’t won a road game since ’07 (even though they got jobbed week 1 against the Bears). That puts the best-case scenario for Minnesota at 1-2 headed into their early-season bye… with a brutal schedule after that. I’d expect a 2-5 start.
    Wouldn’t it be fun to see the excuses if the Lions pulled off the win, though?

    Hey, Canned Gravy….
    Your anger amazes me…Talk about haters!..If you could indeed mop me up at most anything as your profess, I suggest re-reading your own grammar and spelling before casting stones…”The arrogant prick ASSED for all this” I believe he may have ASKED for all this…. would have made more sense…But then, making sense is not your strong suit is it? Making up shit about Favre is…Want to really “mop up” an old man of 60 because you are in such great shape at 41″ ? Good for you..I believe that at 60 you may kick my ass at a lot of things, but intelligence and reasoning are not some of them…You are in fact the arrogant prick…If your injuries really exist, which I doubt, how do you manage to justify staying in the game even if just as an officiate? Shouldn’t you go away as you suggest to Brett?? Aren’t you just holding on to something you can no longer do?…You are truly the most arrogant bullshitter I have ever encountered…Your perceived intelligence is a fallacy..It exists only in your own head..I would imagine your small circle of friends are really bored by and only tolerate you out of a sense of loyalty. As to my spelling and grammar…My spelling is impeccable…My typing on the other hand sucks hence the spelling errors…My grammar is good enough to have allowed me a career here in Wisconsin, teaching it to piss-wads like yourself all of my adult life. (and YES, I DID play high school and college football but not good enough for the pros). I guess I am to blame for your notion that you are so superior…I must have forgotten to teach you the words kindness and humility….When you get to my age you begin to see your mortality waning just as I suspect Favre knows his days are numbered as an icon– But he’s trying to hold onto a dream…like you are by officiating at a game you can no longer play..Trying to keep the dream alive…It IS just a game after all….or does your anger so cloud your judgment that you have forgotten that?? A game…for US…a multi-million dollar BUSINESS for them…His legacy is intact and always will be..You can’t believe that one can screw up so badly as to go back in time and erase one’s former greatness…His judgment may be bad, but his guarantee as a future Hall Of Famer is solid. I will bow out at this juncture and surrender myself to your rage, Sir…

    Favre is clearly playing injured, but he still has more guts than most players half his age. I just think Berrian is a disaster, and it did not help Favre to lose Shancoe for most of the game, but they won. That is all that counts. No one is going to look pretty this season in the NFL.

    If he is good enough to be on the field don’t use that as an excuse….he’s playing poor because he’s 40 soon to be 41 and he doesnt have Rice to bail him out and has zero chemistry with the receivers right now…he also said he was over weight by 14 lbs………..training camp anyone?

    Too funny. Vikings turncoats at their best. Last year you guys couldn’t get enough of BrINT, now suddenly he’s the reason for all your woes? Try giving him someone who can catch the ball and some time to throw it.
    Something could be said about giving his receivers some time to practice with him and get some chemistry going. Of course, that would require Princess Favre to you know, actually show up for camp.
    He missed camp last year and you defended him, he missed it this year and you’re condemning him. So which is it, does he need camp or not?
    As a Packer fan, I recall the 2005 season when Walker went out with a torn ACL on the opening game of season. After that, Driver was Favre’s only real option at receiver, and the team went 4-12. It was said then that if he spent more time in camp with the backups that he may not have had to force plays as much, which resulted in a record number of picks. The loss of Rice this year is looking a lot like the loss of Walker in 2005. At least the Vikes picked up Camarillo as a stop-gap(unlike the Pack’s acquisition of Taco Wallace in 2005), but with Harvin missing TC with migranes and Rice out at least half the season, the Vikes passing game is going to suffer greatly.
    Favre is a front runner and always has been. When the going gets tough tho, BrINT shines.
    This is exactly what we got all too used to seeing in Green Bay once Favre felt pressured to “make something happen”.
