Brett Favre Starting For Vikings; Adrian Peterson Out

Brett Favre, fresh off of being ruled out earlier in the week which caused the Minnesota Vikings to name Joe Webb the team’s starter as well as sign Patrick Ramsey as insurance, has been made active and will start against the Chicago Bears in the Vikings Monday Night Football game tonight at TCF Bank Stadium.

Favre missed his first start in 297 games last week, but apparently woke up feeling “much improved” today and threw the football around pregame in an attempt to make sure his body could handle the cold, snowy conditions that will be present for the Vikings first outdoor home game in 29 years.

In anoher surprise move, the Vikings have ruled running back Adrian Peterson out. Peterson, who bumped knees with Tarvaris Jackson in last week’s game, missed Thursday’s practice but was expected to get the start tonight.
