    Favre injured near end of half

    [size=13pt]Packers' Favre injured near end of half[/size]

    GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Packers quarterback Brett Favre left the field holding his right elbow late in the second quarter Sunday of Green Bay's game against the New England Patriots.

    Favre, making his 251st consecutive start including playoffs, had been wrapped up low by Tully Banta-Cain and was on his way down when Tedy Bruschi hit Favre, forcing him down hard on his right arm and throwing shoulder with 1:41 left in the half.

    Favre, 5-for-15 for 73 yards at that point, doubled over in immediate pain, grasping at his wrist and elbow. The team said he injured his right elbow and his return was questionable.

    Favre held the arm gingerly on the sideline as the training staff looked at him before he was carted off the field at halftime.

    Aaron Rodgers replaced him.

    when i saw it it looked like he was holding his wrist.
    it is his throwing arm, so if its anything more than just a slight sprain, his streak may be in jeopardy.
    but it looked pretty painfull, and bret's a pretty tough guy, i don't think he'd let them cart him off for just a sprain.
    he was holding his wrist like he broke it.

    I reckon Cheeseheads are excited about getting Rodgers some reps.
    He should be primed and ready to get geared up for next year.

    I see a golden opportunity here. Retires due to injury.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?
