Brett Favre Wont End His Career, But He Will Try To End Yours! [Video]
Total Pro Sports – It was only two weeks ago when we learned that the career of Brett Favre would seemingly never end as he announced his coming out of retirement to play with the Minnesota Vikings. Fourteen days later and we have also learned that Favre has no problem ending the careers of others, or at least that is what some would suggest after watching his block on Eugene Wilson last night.
During yesterday’s preseason edition of Monday Night Football between Minnesota and Houston, the Vikings set up in the wildcat formation with Percy Harvin lined up in the shotgun and Favre at the left wideout position. After taking the snap, Harvin ran left and Favre went right looking for someone to block. That someone turned out to be the knees of Texans’ safety Eugene Wilson.
Favre was assessed a penalty for a crackback block on the play and Wilson left the game with a knee injury but it is not believed to be serious.
Kubiak said that safety Eugene Wilson, who was injured in the third quarter when Brett Favre threw an illegal crackback block into his left knee, will be OK.
“It happened; it’s done,” Wilson said of Favre’s block. “I don’t have too much to say about it. I didn’t speak to him about it to see if it was on purpose or not. So I’m not sure.” [HoustonTexans.com]
