The best news coming out of 1265 Lombardi on Monday concerned quarterback Brett Favre . Despite being knocked out of Sunday's loss to the Patriots, Favre is expected to be just fine and will make his record 252nd consecutive start for the Green Bay Packers at Seattle on Monday night.
The strength in the arm and hand that Favre lost after suffering a blow to a nerve in his elbow on Sunday, started to comeback overnight and he reported to work on Monday in much better shape. Team doctors told Mike McCarthy on Monday that Favre is going to be OK.
The news wasn't nearly as good for backup Aaron Rodgers . Rodgers broke his left foot early in the third quarter and despite playing the remainder of the game, will need surgery and is out for the rest of the season. It was Rodgers first and last extended playing time of the season.
Rodgers struggled against the Patriots, completing just 4 of 12 passes for 32 yards.
The Packers worked out three quarterbacks on Monday, J.T. O'Sullivan, Todd Bouman and Bradlee Van Pelt. O'Sullivan and Bouman both played for McCarthy in New Orleans. O'Sullivan also spent the 2004 season on the Packers roster.
The Packers are expected to make a decision today which quarterback to go with and will start preparing that player immediately. The only other quarterback on the roster is 5th round pick Ingle Martin.
