Favre's consecutive-starts streak is over

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre is on the team's inactive list for Monday night's game against the New York Giants, meaning his NFL-record streak for consecutive starts at his position will end at 297 regular-season games, Vikings representative Jeff Anderson said.

Favre, who has held the record since 1999, sprained a joint in his throwing arm during last week's game against the Buffalo Bills and didn't throw a ball during Saturday's walk-through. He had limited participation in Friday's practice, the first time all week he participated at all.

He got a reprieve Sunday, the scheduled date for the game with the Giants. The Vikings were forced to reschedule the game when the inflatable roof of the Metrodome collapsed under 16 inches of snow. The game will be played Monday in Detroit.

Favre has started every game since the fourth game of his 1992 season with the Green Bay Packers. He started every game in the 2008 season with the New York Jets, and every game since joining the Vikings in 2009. Including playoff games, he's started 321 consecutive games.
