Avulsion Fracture: Brett Favre's Injury Could Snap Snap Viking QB's Streak
By Adam Lazarus (Correspondent) on October 26, 2010 2,967
An avulsion fracture (broken bones in his ankle) caused Favre to limp during the end of the Vikings 28-24 loss Sunday Night against Green Bay.
Favre's ankle was a major issue this offseason--he injured it late last year--and surgery was required. The elbow tendonitis that bothered him and the Jenn Sterger scandal set the ankle issue on the backburner for a while. Now it has returned.
Favre was noticeably limping throughout the second half of the Vikings game against the Packers on Sunday night. Still, he continued to play and nearly led the team to an incredible last-second comeback.
When the game was over, Favre hobbled into the locker room. Team officials confirmed the injury on Monday but have not yet ruled him out. Favre has started 291 consecutive games, dating back to the 1992 season.
