Minnesota Vikings Saturday injury report

The Minnesota Vikings submitted their final injury report of the week Saturday in advance of Monday night's game at the New York Jets. Some interesting highlights:

  • Quarterback Brett Favre was limited in Saturday's practice because of an elbow ailment believed to be tendinitis. Coach Brad Childress told reporters that Favre had an MRI earlier this week, but that the test only showed inflammation. There's no chance Favre will miss Monday's game, but it's always worth monitoring when the elbow on a quarterback's throwing arm is injured.

  • Cornerback Chris Cook was ruled out after having surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee.

  • Center John Sullivan (calf) is listed as questionable for the game but will apparently need to make substantial progress in order to get on the field. Ryan Cook is the likeliest replacement.

  • All other players are probable for the game, including tight end Visanthe Shiancoe, who has been limited by a strained hamstring.
