Childress says Favre ‘sore’ but no MRI
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP)—Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress says Brett Favre(notes) is “sore” but has no plans to get an MRI on his throwing shoulder and should be ready to play against Green Bay on Sunday.
ESPN reported on Monday that Favre expected to have an MRI on his right shoulder after experiencing pain Saturday. But Childress says team trainers spoke to Favre on Monday and didn’t think he would need the test. Favre had surgery on his torn biceps in 2009 before joining the Vikings.

Favre made his 294th consecutive regular season start on Sunday against the Bears, extending his NFL record. He completed 18 of 31 passes for 170 yards and a touchdown in the 27-13 loss. He also threw three interceptions, one that came on a tipped ball and two others after Vikings receivers slipped and fell down.
As duly noted in another thread, seems Brett only talks about his injuries after a loss. He looked pretty good to me after he celebrated the 52 yrd TD to Harvin. Jumping around on that "broken" ankle, pumping his arms with that "shoulder" problem.
I've had enough of this guy and his antics. Can't wait until he's retired....

I think he's just trying to get to 300.
That sounds plausible to me based on his antics over the past 5 years.
