Favre May Have Cracked Rib

Aug 31, 2009

ESPN is reporting that Brett Favre suspects he may have a cracked rib.  He is going to attempt to play the entire first half tonight against Houston.  He was blitzed heavily in his Viking debut against Kansas City.  My guess is Houston will follow that game plan.  As the injuries mount (rotator cuff, rib), I just wonder how much punishment the soon to be 40-year old Viking can take. 

If you are drafting your fantasy squad, be careful not to overspend for the future Hall of Famer.

    I started to take a last-round flyer on him just in case he started lighting up the league again like he did at the beginning of last season, but thankfully I passed.

    Good thing the Vikings have an elite RB. Otherwise it could be a long year in Minnesota with this old man behind center.

    Plus one of the best backup RBs in the league. IF they blitz Favre that heavy, chester is going to have a field day with the screens.
