Favre has elbow issue Dan Leberfeld

Minnesota quarterback Brett Favre has a right elbow injury.

“Favre continued to wear a sleeve on his throwing elbow during practice Saturday and coach Brad Childress said an MRI done this week showed “a little inflammation” in quarterback’s elbow,” wrote Judd Zulgad for the Star-Tribune. “Favre is dealing with tendinitis for at least the second time in his career. He was limited in practice for a second consecutive day on Saturday but is listed as probable for Monday night’s game against the Jets.

“Childress said it has not been determined if Favre will wear a sleeve on the arm Monday. Favre also is listed on the Vikings injury report because of soreness in his left ankle, which he had repaired surgically during the offseason.”
