Favre to miss second straight game Monday night


EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- Brett Favre won't play in Minnesota's game Monday against Chicago.

Favre didn't participate in Saturday's practice, and Vikings interim coach Leslie Frazier said the 41-year-old quarterback won't play against the Bears.

Favre's NFL-record streak of 297 consecutive starts ended last Monday when the Vikings played the New York Giants. He said this week his sprained throwing shoulder is still bothering him and that he's also still experiencing numbness in his hand.

Frazier said the numbness is going away and that Favre is slowly getting better, and refused to declare him done for the season.

Running back Adrian Peterson was back at practice Saturday after sitting out the past two days as a precaution because of ankle and knee issues.
