More tests for Brett Favre, who “was not able to do anything”

Vikings quarterback Brett Favre expects to have more tests today on his injured shoulder, as he attempts to determine whether he’ll be able to play again. On Monday night, when his NFL-record streak of consecutive games started was snapped, he said he wasn’t even close to being healthy enough to go.

Really was not able to do anything this week,” Favre said, per Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN.com. “That’s not the first time in my career that’s happened, but this really, based on numbness . . . this is something different that I have to be more cautious of.”

Favre said he’s been experiencing numbness since even before the hit from Bills linebacker Arthur Moats caused him to suffer a sprained sternoclavicular joint.

“So, there’s probably some trauma to that nerve and again, that hit last week just kind of aggravated it again,” Favre said.

Favre said he wants to play but won’t until the numbness in his hand goes away.

“There’s a little pain, but that’s subsided some,” Favre said. “It’s this tingling. So, I think it would be foolish to even consider playing if you don’t have total feeling in five fingers. . . . I won’t play again if I can’t feel my hand.”

And so we may have seen Brett Favre play football for the last time.

Here are Favre’s comments after the Vikings lost to the Giants:

    I wonder if he has an aneuryism in his shoulder. Kind of the problem the David Cone had in his pitching shoulder. Seems to be same symptoms, tingling, numbness…

    @Omar Comin

    You’re clearly the douche. What the hell did you expect????? It was the end of the greatest streak in sports! A streak that lasted 18 years!! I bet the only thing that you’ve done for 18 straight years is jack off in your mom’s basement. You’re an idiot.

    Then they should test the entire Vikings team.

    This is a fitting ending to the biggest self-promoting jackass in NFL history.
    His stupid “Attention Whore Syndrome” made his career forgettable and most fans will remember him for being a diva and a drama queen.
    He has no one but himself to blame.

    Philtration, you’re a moron. Favre didn’t ask for dudes camping out at his house or using his name in every third post to drive up hits. If you’re not intelligent enough to distinguish the difference between reality and media exploitation, quit posting.

    There have been 238 starting quarterbacks in the NFL in the last 18 years other than Favre. Let that sink in for a moment.
