Already running on fumes, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre suffered two separate stress fractures in his left ankle during the Sunday night loss against the Green Bay Packers.

An MRI Monday morning revealed a stress fraction and an avulsion fracture, the result of a tendon or ligament pulling off a piece of the bone.

During a press conference, coach Brad Childress ruled out surgery and said: “Once he’s functional he can play… I wouldn’t rule anything out in terms of the end of the week. I don’t really have a time framework on it.”

Favre injured the ankle on a hit during one of his three interceptions. He is wearing a walking boot and remains uncertain for Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots.

If he is sidelined, Favre’s 291 consecutive game streak will end. NFL league sanctions could also mess with that stat. Roger Goodell is expected to wrap up the sexting investigation involving former Jets employee Jenn Sterger within 7-10 days.

In any case, the 2-4 Vikings are in deep trouble.
