Brett Favre Has Not Passed Concussion Test; Still Doubtful For Tuesday

New, 2 comments

Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune is reporting that Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre still has not passed his initial concussion test, and is a long shot. . .at best. . .to play on Tuesday night when the Vikings take on the Philadelphia Eagles in their snow-delayed matchup.

Favre suffered the concussion on a sack by rookie Corey Wootton of the Chicago Bears in the second quarter of last week's 40-14 loss at TCF Bank Stadium. Favre has said through the course of this week that the hit actually knocked him unconscious, saying he was out for around 20 seconds before he came to.

"That concussion is such a tenuous deal that we’ll see what happens (Monday)," Frazier said. "But there is a battery of tests that he still has to pass that he hasn’t passed, so it’s hard to change his status right now."

The Vikings have been preparing all week as though rookie quarterback Joe Webb would get the start behind center this week, and it appears to have been the prudent thing to do, as it doesn't sound like Favre will be able to answer the bell tomorrow night in Philadelphia.

In other Vikings concussion-related news, safety Madieu Williams has passed his initial concussion test and could be upgraded prior to tomorrow's game.
