Favre Will Start For Vikings, Peterson Out

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Brett Favre is back in the starting lineup for the Minnesota Vikings.

He’ll be without Adrian Peterson, though. The star running back is inactive with thigh and ankle injuries.

After being listed as out on Saturday with a sprained right shoulder that ended his NFL record streak of 297 straight games a week earlier, Favre threw about 15 passes pregame and will start against the Chicago Bears on Monday night.

Favre was upgraded to questionable on Monday morning. Athletic trainer Eric Sugarman says Favre woke up feeling much better and wanted to test out his injured arm.

The game is being played in the snow at the University of Minnesota’s outdoor TCF Bank Stadium because the Metrodome’s roof collapsed last weekend.
