Brett Favre inactive for what is expected to be final game of his career

By Cindy Boren

If this is the last game of Brett Favre's NFL career, he will be spending it on the sideline.

Favre has been listed as inactive for the Minnesota Vikings' season-ending game today against the Lions in Detroit. Favre, 41, is completing his 20th season in the league and one that he says he will be his last. ("I'm done. I'm done," he told the Minneapolis Star Tribune a month ago. Disclaimer: he has said this a time or two before. Tearfully. And in press conferences. If he is done, he's going out dancing, as you can see from the video taken at practice last week.)

He has had multiple injuries this season, including a concussion he suffered Dec. 20 against the Chicago Bears. He was inactive for the Vikings' game Tuesday in Philadelphia.

And, of course, he was the subject of a lengthy investigation into his conduct this season, one that culminated with a $50,000 fine by the NFL last week.
