Brett Favre has sprained shoulder joint, MRI confirms
An MRI of Brett Favre's shoulder confirmed that he has a sprained sternoclavicular joint, according to Minnesota Vikings Coach Leslie Frazier.
"If the doctor says he's fine, he's functional and Brett feels good about it, it won't be a hard decision," Frazier said of whether Favre will make his 298th consecutive NFL start Sunday against the New York Giants. "Between what the medical people tell me and what Brett tells me, we'll make a decision based on that."
Rest is the prescription for Favre, who had no comment to reporters in the locker room. Surgery will not be needed.
