Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy delivered the good news at his afternoon news conference today (Friday) concerning the status of Brett Favre.
The injury to Favre's right throwing elbow was a bruise. Favre has lost feeling in his right hand because of the injury, but began to regain that feeling today.
McCarthy said Favre's elbow injury isn't as serious as the one he had last November and said the word from the teams medical staff is that Favre's streak is not in danger.
Favre has started a record 249 straight NFL games, 269 if you count the playoffs.
