Brett Favre has taken his share of shots this season, including a hit under the chin that everyone thought had put the 41-year-old legend out of the NFL for good.
Favre, true to his warrior nature, has bounced back from every hit this season. But today against the Bills, he may have finally suffered the shot that finishes him.
While executing a roll-out on the Vikings’ first possession, Favre was hit hard from behind and driven into the turf. He came off the field with a shoulder injury, and was said to be “emotional” on the bench. Tarvaris Jackson entered in Favre’s place.
It’s never a good idea to jump the gun on reports of Favre’s demise, but it appears this may truly be it for The Old Gunslinger.
