Brett Favre Doubtful With Head Injury - Webb In At Quarterback

On the Vikings’ final offensive play of their previous drive, Brett Favre was sacked by Corey Wootton and slammed his head hard on the TCF Bank Stadium turf. He needed help to get off of the field, and has been ruled as doubtful to return with a “head injury.”

That’s just fancy talk for “concussion.” He’s not coming back tonight.

For better or worse, it looks like the Joe Webb era is getting its start tonight in Minnesota after all.
