Favre sprains knee

The crowd at Lambeau Field fell silent Sunday as they watched a scene never played out at home before: ironman quarterback Brett Favre was helped from the field in the third quarter after his knee and ankle were badly tangled during a sack. Favre was diagnosed with a knee sprain and it was announced he would not return.<p>

Doug Pederson came on in relief, ironically on the same day that a humorous piece aired on ESPN poking fun at the futility of serving as Favre's backup.

The Redskins were engergized by the Packers' bad fortune, and drove downfield for a field goal to pull to within 17-9. Stay tuned to Packer Report.com for game coverage and updates.
