Coaches have devised a limited plan in an effort to avoid problems with tendonitis which plagued Favre in 2000. Sherman and offensive coordinator Tom Rossley have scheduled in periodic days off for Favre during camp, just as they have the past two seasons.
"We can't forget the fact that he's two seasons removed from tendonitis, and I want to keep abreast of that," Sherman said. "So, we'll be very cautious with him."
Favre said he hasn't experienced a recurrence of the problem because he did not throw much in the past six weeks while at home in Mississippi.
"I feel fine," Favre said. "I'm not trying to go out in preseason games and break any records. I would like to play a little bit. Maybe there's one or two things from last year that you struggled with that you can get better at, I'm always trying to find those things."
