Brett Favre Injury VIDEO: Vikings vs Bills Dec 5, 2010

favre out on first play dec 5 2010 sprained shoulder

Brett Favre was injured on the first play of the game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.  The 41-year-old quarterback was taken to the locker room where it was determined he was suffering a sprain to his throwing shoulder.

Specifically, the hit caused a sprain of the sternoclavicular joint, which connects the sternum to the collarbone.  He will undergo an MRI on Monday.

Favre rolled out on 3rd-and-5 and attempted a pass intended for wide receiver Greg Camarillo.  The veteran player was crushed by 250-pound Bills linebacker Arthur Moats on his first pass of the game, which was intercepted by Drayton Florence.

It was Favre's 297th consecutive regular season start.  He came back during the second half and chatted it up with interim coach Leslie Frazier and backup QB Tarvaris Jackson, leading to speculation that he might get back into the game.  Never happened.

Jackson threw for 187 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions.  The Vikings beat Buffalo 38-14.  They are 5-7 for the season.

Will Favre start next week against the New York Giants?  Should be interesting to see if his long running streak will end.
