Favre has fractured ankle

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre suffered two fractures in his left ankle as a result from Sunday night’s loss at the Green Bay Packers, head coach Brad Childress confirmed Monday.

According to Childress, Favre has an evulsion fracture as well as a stress fracture in the ankle. Childress said Favre is wearing an ankle boot. He hasn’t been ruled out for Sunday’s game at the New England Patriots and he won’t need surgery, the coach said during his weekly news conference.

Favre — who had offseason surgery on the ankle — has started 291 consecutive games, but this injury places that streak in serious jeopardy. Tarvaris Jackson would start if Favre can’t play.

Sources reported that after the game Favre needed to use both rails to go down three steps from the podium where his postgame news conference was held.

Some year for Favre.
