Brett Favre officially questionable for Sunday

Brett Favre participated in practice again on Friday, but was listed as questionable on the injury report for Sunday’s game.

There doesn’t seem to be any doubt among the local Vikings reporters that Favre will start, but Vikings coach Brad Childress said Favre is essentially a game-time decision.

“It will be right up to then,” Childress said via the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. “You never know coming
back, [Favre] took a few more turns today. I can’t look into a crystal ball
and see how he wakes up tomorrow. He could wake up with the gout
tomorrow morning.”

Assuming Favre avoids the gout, he will be hoping that the pain in his elbow goes down.  Childress said Favre “looked OK.  Looked all right,” at practice on Friday.

According to the trusty Rotoworld news database, the last time Favre was listed as questionable was Week Four of 2008 with the Jets.  There was no doubt at the time he would start then, however.

Vikings center John Sullivan (calf) and cornerback Chris Cook (knee) both look unlikely to be active on Sunday.

    Yeh he’s questionable alright. Questionable by his wife towards his marriage promise. The only thing Brett Farve is not questionable about is whether he will be sexting the next locker room reporter he wants to shag.

    LOL! he’ll start like he always does. Keep on hatin haters. It’s getting old making you all look bad. Just give it up already and accept the fact that Favre is still the leagues best QB. I’m done with this crap. I’m going to grab me a 6 pack of Hamm’s and keep laughing at all you fools! LOL!!!
    SKOL VIKINGS!

    He’s gonna start. This is just a lame attempt at a Willis Reed type scenario to get the crowd fired up. The Packers pulled this a couple of times – once back in ’95, when he came out and tossed 5 TDs against the Bears. I’m sure he had a few Vicodins that day as it was before his treatment.
    Wouldn’t be surprised at all to see him start and torch the Dallas D, even with that bum arm.

    Ryan Cook has done damn well at center which was his original position before the NFL. He was horrid at tackle, I think he should be able to win the job over John Sullivan.

    “He could wake up with the gout tomorrow morning.” I thought NFL coaches didn’t like to talk about “hypotheticals.”

    HA,HA!!!
    I HOPE RANDY ENJOYS HAVING TAVARIS JACKSON AS HIS QB!

    Col Klink must have stayed at a Holiday Inn last night as it appears he has added MD credentials to his already considerable skills as a comedian, resident genius and cross dressing chauffeur. If Favre suffers from any affliction, I would guess it to be Smalldickitis.
    Now if he could only learn to keep that 12th man out of the huddle, he might have been called a Superbowl coach, a distinction he is not going to achieve in 2010.

  11. Deb says: Oct 15, 2010 4:08 PM

    The gout comment pretty much tells you he’ll be playing. But if I were a Vikes fan, I’d be hoping some of the coaching staff would sit out.

  12. CT Pats Fan says: Oct 15, 2010 4:09 PM

    How long before Randy Moss starts acting up and demands a trade?

  13. LunarPie says: Oct 15, 2010 4:13 PM

    Scotty Fargo,
    The more hope you have in a 40 year old quarterback to win a super bowl the more you appear to be destined for a psych ward. No worries though, you’ll get plenty of tv game coverage due to the BS. In time he will be fighting with Brett over who gets the most attention. This is THE END for Brett. Enjoy his crazy attention seeking style while the rest of us watch football.

  14. Honinbo says: Oct 15, 2010 4:13 PM

    Florio: Its only a matter of time before Favre’s past girlfriends start turning up. Its common knowledge here that he had a long term relationship with a woman from Madison, Wi after he got married.

  15. TampaBayBucs7-9 says: Oct 15, 2010 4:14 PM

    Brett Farve will Miss the Start against Green bay. GUARANTEED.

  16. permissions denied - eat me! says: Oct 15, 2010 4:20 PM

    Little brett is definetely questionable!!

  17. clintcooper says: Oct 15, 2010 4:21 PM

    Wow, the Vikings sure suck this year. Favre is the best quarterback of all time, if you are counting quantity, not quality. As far as I’m concerned he’s no better than Brad Johnson, who also has one Super Bowl ring. He wouldn’t even be in my top ten.

    Is that a joke? Dude, get off his &%$# already, its so pathetic how vikings fans hated on him all those years and now they ride him like a horse. If 861 yards, 5 tds, and 7 ints, QB rating of 67.0 makes him the best QB in the NFL, then the NFL needs a serious makeover…

  19. Hauschild says: Oct 15, 2010 4:33 PM

    The HAWG’s still alive and kicking!
    The game on Sunday should seal Wade Phillips’ fate. How does this guy along with Norv Tuner manage to continually find themselves gainfully employed as NFL head coaches? Amazing, really.

    CanadianVikingFanII says: “Ryan Cook has done damn well at center which was his original position before the NFL. He was horrid at tackle, I think he should be able to win the job over John Sullivan.”
    Are you kidding? Did you see the Jets game? After going 3-and-out almost every possession in the furst half, the coaches pulled Ryan Cook at halftime and inserted Jon Cooper. After that the Vikings offense began to roll.
    There’s more to playing center than not letting the NT get a sack. Cook — after prepping for two weeks to start at center against the Jets — couldn’t identifty the blitzes presnap and was not making the right calls at the line of scrimmage. His mistakes killed the Vikings, which is why he was pulled.
    Once John Sullivan returns and Chris Degere recovers from his ankle injury, look for Cook to be the inactive O lineman the rest of the season and to be waived or not resigned (don’t know when his contract expires) in the offseason.

  21. JCD says: Oct 15, 2010 4:35 PM

    Oh please, the drama queen will start. But if he’s terrible he has a built in excuse.

  22. acers says: Oct 15, 2010 4:35 PM

    Oh the haters……no problem…..more time with Moss=more victories……Vikes will take care of business this weekend, and in the division, create momentum going forward….Favre will be just fine….

  23. leopoldjones.com says: Oct 15, 2010 4:36 PM

    Scotty fargo are you serious “Favre is still the leagues best QB” I can think of ten better than him right now, Both Mannings, brady, mark sanchez, aaron rodgers jay cutler, matt schaub, drew brees, philip rivers, joe flacco. there are two better qbs in his division at 5 better than him in conference.

  24. CaptainFantastik says: Oct 15, 2010 4:51 PM

    Funny how Favre’s elbow only hurts when he makes the bad throws. On the rare occasion he actually makes a good none he pumps that same arm like he just won the Super Bowl. You never saw him holding arm on the sideline either.
    And Favre couldn’t possibly care less about hurting the team. He’ll play and kill his team like he’s always done.

  25. Mike Hunt says: Oct 15, 2010 4:54 PM

    Now if he could only direct that gout (swelling of a joint) down to his Johnson…………………

  26. benjua says: Oct 15, 2010 4:59 PM

    “I can’t look into a crystal ball and see how he wakes up tomorrow. He could wake up with the gout tomorrow morning.”
    by that stupid logic, everyone is questionable at best.

  27. shadowman1433 says: Oct 15, 2010 5:04 PM

    His play has been questionable all year!

  28. mike says: Oct 15, 2010 5:07 PM

    The Vikings will just add another million to his contract to help him make up his mind again.
    Questions for the vikings fans is it worth a million a game to watch this guy?

  29. 2MuchTime says: Oct 15, 2010 5:30 PM

    He makes it through the first quarter and then he is down for the game.
    Next week he makes it through the half
    He needs to hit 300 games to salvage his marketability and a playoff game is not out of the question.
    The NFL owners are probably pissed that a franchise player is coming and going as he pleases. It is a dangerous precident for management league wide. The NFL will go after the Jenn Sterger story. It’s a control issue.
    If Favre did the Kurt Warner route this story would be a blip. Shows up early for camp and mentors younger players. If he went that route instead of ‘The Me Show’ things would be going differently right now.
    T-Jax will come off the bench and Favre gets his start – 290. Ten to go.

  30. Deb says: Oct 15, 2010 5:41 PM

    Well, here we go again. Made a brief completely inocuous post about Favre way back before most of these were posted but it’s nowhere to be seen. Story of my life on PFT today. Have to submit the same posts two, three, four, five times. Apparently I can’t say that it would be better for the Vikes if their coaches sit out, but JimmySmith can mouth off about gay people committing suicide and his posts just pop right up. Okay, I get it. Just because this has now happened on about six threads today and I’m having a crappy work day and tired of reposting … I understand why my stuff keeps disappearing into thin air. Sure, I get it …

  31. Pervy xx says: Oct 15, 2010 5:44 PM

    It will be right up to then,” Childress said via the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. “You never know coming back, [Favre] took a few more turns today. I can’t look into a crystal ball and see how he wakes up tomorrow.

    You just have to roll over and look Chilly….don’t you sleep with Brett??

  32. robsterNY says: Oct 15, 2010 5:46 PM

    His last name should be FARSE…cause thats what he is the past few months ..a Farse…His arm only hurts when he makes a bad throw…this guy is so full of shit.Everybody just seems to go along with it. When he hit Moss monday night his arm didnt hurt!…but you would have thought it was going to fall off when the Jets took him for 6 a few Mins. later *LOL*..Better you guys then us.

  33. Beer Cheese Soup says: Oct 15, 2010 5:48 PM

    The irrelevant Vikings quest for attention continues.
    Why don’t they try to get attention like other teams, by actually, you know, winning games??

    Only if they beat the Packers. That is the Vikings’ sole purpose in life.
    No need for championships, no need for success of any kind on the field. Beat the Packers, and they’ll keep their fans happy. It’s kind of sad, really.

    Who’s making the haters look bad? Favre has more interceptions than TD’s, and the Vikings are 1-3.
    Stop inhaling from aerosol spray cans before you become as dumb as Scott Studwell.

  36. meridethtohayes says: Oct 15, 2010 6:07 PM

    I figure Brett will start, play a few series’ and MAYBE sit…But that this will go on another week so that the drama will include the Vikes going to Green Bay, for another “gametime decision”.
    I hope this Sunday, Demarcus Ware tosses him into the stands.

  37. mikemcsaint says: Oct 15, 2010 6:16 PM

    Cowboy fans should be happy. This means there’s a pick coming at the most crucial point in the game.

    As if the day weren’t troublesome enough, I’ve bounced all over PFT misspelling innocuous. Lovely.
    Of course Favre will play on Sunday. How silly to think otherwise. Unfortunately, the same guys will be calling plays. But on the bright side for the Vikes, the same guys will be calling plays for the ‘boys, too. Should be interesting.

    Gosh, I really feel for this guy…I mean, first, he’s the biggest drama queen the NFL has ever known. Second, he misses all training camp and has played like the rear end of a dog. Third, he’s only got about 4 inches…not good.

    Dude, no…… I’m not a Cook hater, but I have noticed that this is the second time (first in preseason)_ that things along the line have run smoother when Cooper replaced Cook. He’s not cut out for the C spot, at least right now. He’s a less talented Hicks at this point, and that’s about it.

    Dude…. Funny, but I just wanted you to know, I used to drive for a distributor that carried hamm’s, and you’d be surprised how much of that stuff moves. Not sure why……. And have you been to Fargo? I have. It might surprise you. Just don’t go in January. Or February. Or December, or March, or November….. April and may might be a bad idea, too. I’ll never forget the National Gaurd deuce-and-a-half stranded in the flooded streets about 15 years back.
