Favre Knocked Out of Game by Hard Hit

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Vikings quarterback Brett Favre has been knocked out of the game against the Buffalo Bills.

The 41-year-old was crushed by Bills linebacker Arthur Moats on his first pass play of the game. The pass was intercepted by Drayton Florence.

Favre was slow to get up and staggered to the sidelines. He was replaced by Tarvaris Jackson on the next series, and later walked to the locker room with team trainers. The team says he is questionable to return with a shoulder injury.

Favre extended his NFL record by starting his 297th straight regular season game.

But on the third play of the game, Favre rolled to his right and was blindsided by Moats just as he started to throw. The ball fluttered in the air and fell into Florence's arms for Favre's 18th interception of the season.
