Favre will be Sunday decision

Posted by: under Vikings coaches, Leslie Frazier, Vikings injury report, Brett Favre, Leslie Frazier, Percy Harvin, Ray Edwards, Tyrell Johnson Updated: December 8, 2010 - 12:08 PM

Quick highlights of Leslie Frazier's presser:

QB Brett Favre (shoulder) will be a game-time decision, but Frazier will not start Favre with the idea of taking him out quickly. Frazier does expect Favre to play. He won't practice today, however. Maybe tomorrow.

RB Albert Young has an MCL (knee) injury and that is why he will be place on the IR.

QB R.J. Archers was signed to practice squad as insurance, with both Favre and Joe Webb hurting.

Frazier said Percy Harvin's illness problem is related entirely to ongoing issues with migraines, and it doesn't sound as if he will practice today. He should be able to play Sunday, however.

DE Ray Edwards (ankle) should be ready Sunday. S Tyrell Johnson (knee) is likely out.
