Four days after turning 38, Favre had his left ankle rolled early in the Packers' 17-14 win over Washington on Sunday. He didn't have to come out of the game but walked with a slight limp afterward.
Favre underwent surgery on the badly damaged ankle last February.
"Not that I've got a good ankle, but that's the bad ankle, and that's the last thing I needed rolled up on," Favre said. "It really doesn't feel very good right now. The bye week, it'll help a little bit. I'm sure it'll hurt two weeks from now. It hurt before the game."
Coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that Favre was feeling better.
Coach takes the blame
McCarthy reiterated that he was guilty of faulty game management toward the end Sunday.
The Packers had to punt with less than 1:30 left in the fourth quarter, ahead by three points. The Redskins were out of timeouts, so the game clock was running when Green Bay lined up in punt formation.
"That's poor time management," McCarthy said. "That's my responsibility. I was in a conversation on the (previous) third-down call. No excuse. That can't happen. That was clearly a mistake on my part."
The Redskins didn't take advantage of having the extra time.
Davis said after the game that he prematurely snapped the football when he heard rookie Korey Hall, the up back in the formation, call for the ball to be snapped.
"We've got to clean that up," Davis said. "It's just one of those things, Korey's a first-year guy, and they didn't give him the call, I guess. So, he went out there and said, 'Set.' I probably should've took control of that, being the vet in there. But, it is what it is."
-- TE Bubba Franks is expected to be out at least two weeks after suffering a sprained knee in the Packers' win over Washington on Sunday. The extent of the injury had yet to be determined Monday.
-- CB Frank Walker also came out of the game with a potentially serious knee injury. The special teams contributor was undergoing tests Monday.
-- DE/DT Cullen Jenkins sustained a knee injury late in the first half but returned for the entire second half. He's expected to be fine for next week.
-- C Scott Wells is recovering from a fractured eye socket that sidelined him Sunday. The team is hopeful Wells would be able to return to practice next week and play in the next game, Oct. 29 at Denver. Jason Spitz made his first career start at center in Wells' absence.
