Brett Favre hasn’t been ruled out for Monday night

That crazy Brett Favre is at it again. Just when you think he’s out of your life he pops up again out of nowhere.

According to Chip Scoggins via his Twitter page, Lord Favre has been upgraded from out to questionable for the Vikings’ Monday Night Football game against the Bears. Rookie Joe Webb is still expected to start, but given Favre’s flair for the dramatics and considering it is Monday Night Football (i.e. Lord Favre time), I guess you can never count the old bastard out.

Favre is expected to throw two and a half hours before the game to see if he’s well enough to play. He must have had a miraculous recovery throughout the week because last Monday it looked like his hand was suffering from gang green. He was experiencing shoulder pain when he threw but you know he’ll play if the pain is manageable.

Personally, I was interested to see how the highly athletic Webb would play, although Minnesota is supposed to be hit with about 65 inches of snow tonight so it’s not like the rookie would have been running around much anyway. I’ll take a Favre MNF story any day of the week – especially when he’s playing against a divisional opponent.

Stay tuned.

Update: Favre is active and starting for the Vikings on Monday night, although Adrian Peterson will sit out. Some final MNF magic for Favre?
