The Vikings’ come-from-behind win over the Lions on Sunday, which featured a 27-3 finish after Minnesota fell into a 10-point hole, included an injury to their starting quarterback.
Brett Favre made his 271st consecutive start, breaking former Vikings defensive end Jim Marshall’s all-time record. At the finish, however, Favre banged up his hand.
“It’s all right,” Favre said of the injury to his throwing hand, which came one play before Favre threw a short touchdown pass to Percy Harvin.
Coach Brad Childress also reportedly “dismissed” the notion that Favre’s hand was damaged in any way.
Still, given the fines imposed last week for the Jets’ failure to disclose Favre’s arm injury in 2008 and a vow from Childress to list every “mucous membrane” on Favre that might be injured, it’ll be very interesting to see whether Favre’s hand is listed on the this reports that will come in advance of next week’s home opener against the 49ers.
