Favre on injury report for Vikings

Posted by: under Injury report, Vikings, Packers, Vikings injury report, Brett Favre, Cedric Griffin, Chris Kluwe, Steve Hutchinson Updated: October 1, 2009 - 3:59 PM

Vikings quarterback Brett Favre might not be at 100 percent when he faces his former team, the Green Bay Packers, on Monday night at the Metrodome.

A sore foot limited Favre in today's practice and made him one of nine Vikings listed on the injury report. Favre took a pounding last Sunday against the 49ers. "I've never been as beat after a game as I was the other day," he said today. "I had nothing left, so that had a lot to do with how I felt."

Pro Bowl left guard Steve Hutchinson was unable to take part in any of the practice because of a sore back. Hutchinson also had an issue with his back in training camp.

Wide receiver Darius Reynaud, the Vikings' punt returner, did not take part because of a hamstring injury suffered last Sunday against San Francisco.

New additions to the report for the Vikings include cornerback Cedric Griffin (hand), punter Chris Kluwe (illness) and fullback Naufahu Tahi (back). All three were limited. Linebackers E.J Henderson (shoulder) and Erin Henderson (calf) and tight end Jim Kleinsasser (hand) have previously been on the injury report and also were limited. 

The Packers injury report includes safety Atari Bigby (knee, out); running back Brandon Jackson (ankle, out); left tackle Chad Clifton (ankle, did not participate); defensive end Cullen Jenkins (groin, DNP); wide receiver Greg Jennings (wrist, full participation); linebacker Jeremy Thompson (knee, DNP); and cornerback Charles Woodson (foot, DNP).
