Favre’s Sore Shoulder Keeps Him Out of Packers Practice

Packers quarterback Brett Favre is done with workouts with the Packers for now, all due to a sore right shoulder.  The right throwing shoulder for Favre is going to get a break as he wants to make sure that he does not wear it out for the upcoming training camp in July and the season which starts in September. “I probably could practice, but it really don’t make a lot of sense to go out and make it any worse,” Favre said. “I think it’s probably just tendinitis or something like that.”

Favre did not practice with the Pack Wednesday and Thursday.  The longtime quarterback overall has missed seven of the 12 OTA’s since they began three weeks ago.  Head coach Mike McCarthy is not concerned about the situation, and thinks that Favre will be ready to go when needed.  “The biggest thing we got out of Brett being here No. 1 is to be around the younger guys (and) doing the adjustments we’ve made in our scheme getting ready for the season,” McCarthy said. “I was late for practice today because I was with Brett going through some of the red-zone and third-down adjustments that weve made, just finalizing that and making sure were on the same page.”
