Favre plans to consult with Dr. James Andrews this week

It’s going to be a busy week for Dr. James Andrews.

The famous surgeon is expected to meet with Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford on Monday. Chad Pennington will probably want to get an MRI looked at after his latest setback, which is expected to end his season.

Andrews’ most famous football client also wants to get checked out. Brett Favre told ESPN’s Ed Werder that he’d contact Andrews and likely submit an MRI to be evaluated. Favre reported pain in his shoulder to Werder after the game, and believes it may be related to his biceps injury he suffered in 2008.

Favre wondered if an underthrown pass to Percy Harvin he made could have been affected by the injury, even though he didn’t feel any pain.

As Favre mentioned after the game, the Vikings are “running out of games,” he said. “At the rate we’re playing, it won’t take but a couple more, and we’ll be out of it.”

When that happens, it seems like Favre has an exit strategy prepared.
