|Favre Listed as Doubtful for Eagles Game
|EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- Leslie Frazier counted Brett Favre out once before. He's not about to do it again.
The Minnesota Vikings coach says Favre will be listed as doubtful with a concussion, leaving the door open for the 41-year-old quarterback to play against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night.
A week ago, the Vikings listed Favre as "out" for the game against Chicago with a sprained right shoulder. He was surprisingly upgraded to questionable the day of the game and ended up starting against the Bears, a development that didn't sit well with Chicago coach Lovie Smith.
Favre was knocked out of that game in the second quarter after being sacked by Corey Wootton.
If Favre cannot play, rookie Joe Webb will make his first career start.
