Favre Would Consider Missing Time


EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- Brett Favre's latest problem is his elbow.

Favre said Wednesday he would consider sitting out a game or two for the Minnesota Vikings this season if the tendinitis in his right elbow gets worse. Favre has started an NFL record 289 straight games, a streak he cherishes.

The 41-year-old quarterback also is the subject of an NFL investigation into allegations that he sent racy messages and lewd photos to a game-day hostess in 2008 while both worked for the New York Jets.

Favre again sidestepped questions about the matter on Wednesday during his weekly news conference. He says he's focused solely on helping the Vikings come back from a 1-3 start.
