Brett Favre's Injury Diagnosed As Sprained Shoulder, But Could Still Start Against Giants

Brett Favre's injury in Sunday's Minnesota Vikings romp over the Buffalo Bills looked painful and resulted in a sprained joint in his throwing shoulder, but that doesn't necessarily mean he won't make his 298th consecutive start against the New York Giants next weekend.

The drama never really seems to leave Favre for long, and this week looks like it'll be the talk of Minnesota right up until gametime on Sunday.

"From what I've been told, rest is probably key," Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said Monday. "That's going to be number one, and they'll do some exercises with him to help him as well. But it's not something that can surgically be attended to. It's just a matter of rest and then the rehab that they're going to put him through."

So if rehab goes well, he's definitely playing.

"If the medical people tell me he's clear and he feels comfortable, he'll play," Frazier said, adding: "The streak really doesn't come into play. Brett's got to be honest about where he is. I really trust him in that regard. If he can play, he'll tell us. If he can't play, he'll tell us."

Stay tuned to SB Nation Minnesota as well as Daily Norseman for the week in will he or won't he regarding Brett Favre's injury status.
