Report: Favre Has Cracked Rib

Report: Favre Has Cracked Rib As if the pigskin plot wasn't twisted enough already in Minnesota, quarterback Brett Favre has made things very interesting in Vikings camp after the 39-year-old told ESPN that he believes he has a cracked rib.

Favre reported the injury before Monday night's game at Houston and said
that he hasn't received an official diagnosis. However, the three-time MVP said that taking deep breaths causes discomfort. Favre also doesn't plan to wear any kind of special
padding, stating that "the damage is done."

The 19-year veteran was expected to play the entire first half against the Texans and his agent, Bus Cook wrote in an e-mail to the
Associated Press that he didn't know if Favre has a cracked rib but "he'll play
as far as I know
."

Favre, who signed a $25 million deal with Minnesota on Aug. 18, wasn't listed on the injury report.
