Brett Favre says he's "done,'' and may finally end his long NFL career.
AP- An historic era in NFL annals is ending on Monday as Brett Favre will be left out of the starting lineup for the first time since 1992.
Favre, dealing with effects of a shoulder strain suffered on Dec. 5, will see his NFL-record streak of 297 straight regular-season starts end in the Minnesota Vikings' game against the New York Giants in Detroit.
Brett Favre's consecutive games streak began in Week 4 in 1992.
The Vikings put Favre on the inactive list for Monday's game. Tarvaris Jackson, who led the Vikings to a 38-14 win in Week 13 after Favre was injured on the opening drive, was set to replace Favre as the team's starter.
The last time Favre, 41, didn't start a game was on Sept. 20, 1992, when he relieved an injured Don Majkowski to begin a 16-year run as the starting QB of the Green Bay Packers. The streak continued through stops with the New York Jets and Vikings.
Favre's streak is 92 games more than the second-longest streak among QBs in NFL history, held by the Indianapolis Colts' Peyton Manning, who started his 205th straight game last week.
