EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Brett Favre is walking around the Minnesota Vikings practice facility without the oversized boot that has been protecting his injured left ankle.

Favre limped through the locker room Thursday before practice with just a wrap on his ankle. He suffered two fractures around the ankle in the game against Green Bay on Sunday night, putting his league-record 291-straight starts streak in jeopardy.

The 41-year-old quarterback was not on the practice field during the portion open to the media Thursday. When asked if he thought he could play, Favre said, "I wouldn't put anything past me, to be honest with you."

The Vikings (2-4) play at New England on Sunday. If Favre cannot play, Tarvaris Jackson would step in.
