EDEN PRAIRIE/HARMONY, Minn. (KTTC-DT/AP) -- Brett Favre is back from his bye week, saying he believes his pulled groin will be fine. He had time to relax, and heal.
Favre says he stayed in Minnesota during the bye. He went hunting, but says all he killed was time. Folks in the Harmony area tell the NewsCenter that the Vikings star quarterback has been bow hunting for deer at an area farm in recent weeks.
Favre was hurt during practice two weeks ago and aggravated the injury in pregame warmups at Green Bay on Nov. 1. The Vikings didn't play last week, giving the 40-year-old quarterback extra time to heal.
Favre said Wednesday the injury bothered him during the Packers game, but "not as bad" as he feared it might. He says he was concerned mostly because he'd never had the problem before.
The Vikings (7-1) host Detroit (1-7) this Sunday.
Favre likes his privacy, and that goes for his hunting expeditions too. During the Green Bay years, we know Favre and buddies Doug Pederson and Wesley Walls slipped away for some bow hunting, to a farm near Sparta, Wisconsin. It was back in 2003, and the trio flew in to hunt Al and Nancy McCoy's farm--before they left, Favre's pilot snapped a photo. And McCoy told Ken Luchterhand of the Jackson County Chronicle he has another memento: "all three players autographed my kitchen table."
