Favre scheduled for third lubricant injection

NEW ORLEANS -- Greetings from the Superdome press box. I wanted to pass along an interesting note from ESPN’s Ed Werder, who interviewed Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre here in New Orleans.

As you know, Favre has begun a treatment plan of lubricant injections into his surgically-repaired left ankle. Favre told Werder that he has already had two such injections since re-joining the Vikings three weeks ago, and is scheduled to have a third after Thursday night’s game.

Favre, who turns 41 next month, said that his mobility remains limited and that he no longer considers scrambling from the pocket an option. But he believes the surgery and subsequent treatment has left him with enough movement to dodge pass rushers in the pocket. We’ll know soon.
