The drama of the Monday night game between the Bears and Vikings just got a little more interesting, as the Vikings have upgraded QB Brett Favre from “Out” to “Questionable” on their injury report. The team also has placed guard Steve Hutchinson on injured reserve.
The 41-year-old will attempt to throw roughly two hours before kickoff at the University of Minnesota’s TCF Bank Stadium, and a final determination will be made on whether or not he can play.
Favre saw his NFL record streak of 297 consecutive regular-season starts ended last Monday when the Vikings lost to the New York Giants at Detroit’s Ford Field due to a SC sprain of his right shoulder. Hutchinson, who saw his own streak of 131 straight starts ended two weeks ago, was placed on IR with a broken thumb.
In other roster news, the Vikes promoted quarterback R.J. Archer from the practice squad to the active roster.
