Brett Farve Sits Out Bye Week Practice - Green Bay Post

It will be interesting to see what next week brings with his recovery.

Favre sits out practice
By Rob Demovsky

The Packers’ first bye-week practice Tuesday did not include quarterback Brett Favre and a handful of other veteran and injured players.

Backup quarterback Aaron Rodgers took most of the reps in practice in place of Favre.

Other players held out of practice were: running back Ahman Green, fullback Brandon Miree, linebacker Abdul Hodge, linebacker Ben Taylor, left tackle Chad Clifton, defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins, receiver Donald Driver and receiver Robert Ferguson.

Favre had been bothered by a sore neck and shoulder before last week’s loss to the St. Louis Rams.

Rookie cornerback Will Blackmon returned to practice but still wasn’t able to fully participate due to the foot injury that has kept him out since May.

Blackmon said he’s hopeful he’ll be ready to return in time for the Packers’ next game, at Miami on Oct. 22.

The Packers are scheduled to practice through Thursday before taking a three-day weekend.

Maybe he should sit out against the Dolphins as well!!!! I cant take it anymore, I have been a die hard Packers fan for 30 years and have never see an act of such selfishness. McCarthy needs to grow a set and start Rodgers. After all its the Green Bay Packers not the Green Bay Farvers. Ask ourselves what Lombardi would do.
