Reports from inside concerning Favre's recovery from his sprained lateral collateral ligament were encouraging.
"Same as always, nothing different," was receiver Donald Driver's assessment of Favre. Driver was the recipient of a couple of Favre's trademark bombs.
Favre's approach is only slightly altered by a large knee brace reinforced with a heavy tape job. The tape was hindering his movement somewhat, according to coach Sherman, so he's likely to play with just the brace.
"He has more freedom," Sherman said. "When he was taped up real heavily, he wasn't as accurate (with his throws). But with that tape off, he seems pretty accurate."
