Vikings QB Brett Favre told ESPN after the Minnesota game today that he has a previously-undisclosed injury that’s been giving him pain.
After his news conference was complete, he told Ed Werder that he has a pain in his right shoulder that could be related to his 2008 biceps surgery.
From the ESPN story:
Favre told Werder he experienced a sharp pain there while putting on a T-shirt at practice Saturday and there was discussion about taking a pain-killing injection to play against the Bears, but that was eventually deemed unnecessary.
Favre said the shoulder was examined by team doctors and will likely be rechecked Monday. Favre said he experienced no pain during the game but wondered if his underthrown pass on a deep pattern to an open (Percy) Harvin might have indicated otherwise.
Suffice to say, it has not been a very good season for Favre. Maybe he should have, you know, stayed retired.
