For Brett Favre, his streak of consecutive regular-season starts ended at 297. For Tarvaris Jackson, the streak will end at one.
Per a league source, Jackson will be placed on injured reserve due to a toe injury suffered on Monday night against the Giants at Ford Field. The move presumably clears a spot for Patrick Ramsey, the veteran quarterback who likely will start for the Vikings against the Bears, only days after joining the team.
It had been believed that Favre would be placed on IR instead. Until he is, a chance remains that we’ll see him on the field one more time.
Unless he plays again next year.
