Childress: Favre 'cleared very quickly'

Posted by: under Vikings, Vikings players, Brett Favre, Percy Harvin Updated: November 1, 2010 - 1:42 PM

Vikings quarterback Brett Favre was at Winter Park doing exercises on Monday after getting knocked out of Sunday's loss to New England on a hard hit in the fourth quarter.

Patriots defensive lineman Myron Pryor opened a gash in Favre's chin, requiring eight stitches and leaving him woozy.

Childress said Favre will undergo a concussion test Monday, but he expects the quarterback to make his 293rd consecutive start Sunday against Arizona.

"I just saw him in there doing some leg curls," Childress said during his Monday press conference. "Typically if you're concussed or something like that, we're not doing any exercise today. We're not doing an exercise challenge. I talked to the trainer this morning. He had not yet seen Brett. Brett said he was fine. I know that they have to do an impact test here before the day gets out. He cleared very, very quickly."
 
Favre looked woozy on the field but he seemed normal when he addressed the media after the game.
 
"Yeah, it could have been that he was a little woozy for any of you people that can't see blood, yours or somebody else's," Childress said.

Percy Harvin injured his left ankle on the second series but was able to return and finish the game. Childress said he wasn't sure the exact tests the medical staff did on Harvin's ankle on Monday, but he said the wide receiver is getting treatment and is sore.

"How it will be on Wednesday when we come back out here and practice, I'm not sure," Childress said. 

Cornerbacks Chris Cook and Frank Walker left the game at different times with leg injuries.
 
"They're banged up and receiving treatment today, so hopefully they make it to Wednesday [practice]," Childress said.
