Brett Favre hasn’t been cleared to return from the concussion he suffered eight days ago and will not be on the field tonight for the Minnesota Vikings.
Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports that Favre will be inactive tonight.
That means Joe Webb will get his first NFL start tonight in Philadelphia. Webb is the eighth different rookie quarterback to start in the NFL this season, the most rookies to start at quarterback in a non-strike year since 1977.
Now the question is whether Favre will be able to return in five days against the Detroit Lions, or whether his season — and in all likelihood his NFL career — is already over.
