EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Brett Favre sounds like a quarterback who's thrown his last pass, at peace with the way his storied career could end on a blindside hit that slammed him to the turf and ended his all-time record durability streak.
With the Vikings quarterback situation completely up in the air Thursday, Favre said he still feels discomfort in his sprained shoulder and numbness in his hand. That's 11 days after the injury that kept him out of Minnesota's last game against the New York Giants.
He said "there's no way" he would consider playing Monday night against the Chicago Bears with the same symptoms.
The Vikings (5-8) have been eliminated from playoff contention with three games left.
Favre said he'll stay with the team until the season is over, even if he doesn't play anymore.
