|Vikings Upgrade Favre to Questionable
|MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- So maybe Brett Favre isn't quite done yet.
The Vikings said Favre has been upgraded to questionable for Monday night's game against the Chicago Bears.
Spokesman Bob Hagan says the team will watch Favre throw about two hours before kickoff and decide whether Favre can suit up for the outdoors game at the University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium.
Favre didn't practice all week because of a sprained throwing shoulder. The injury kept Favre out of last week's loss to the New York Giants and ended his NFL-record straight of 297 straight regular-season starts.
Rookie Joe Webb is slated to start against the Bears, who can wrap up the NFC North title with a win.
Looks like it is going to be a cold and snowy night for the teams who face off in an outdoor stadium in Minneapolis tonight.
Moving the game out of the snow-damaged Metrodome could be a good thing for Chicago, which has lost seven of its last eight games at that stadium. The Bears can clinch the North title with a win over the Vikings tonight.
