Cook still missing; Favre wearing sleeve on elbow

The Vikings were without the services of cornerback Chris Cook for the second straight practice (at least the start of it). Cook's knee has apparently been acting up since the Detroit game nearly two weeks ago.

He had surgery on the knee after originally injuring it during the third preseason game and he has played in only one game since.

Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier said he wasn't sure if Cook re-injured the knee in the Sept. 26 Lions game or some other time. Frazier just said he got a call during the bye week informing him it was an issue.

Brett Favre wasn't limited in Thursday's practice, according to the injury report, but he came out for Friday's practice with a sleeve on his throwing elbow. He was icing it on Thursday during his press conference.

"I'm not overly concerned about it," Favre said Thursday. "But just based on my 20 years, there's been little things that nag here and there. Of course, that's the throwing arm, so a little bit more of a concern. I've probably iced more in the last three weeks than I have in my whole career. I don't want to say I'm getting overly mental, but I want to be crisp. I want to be smart about it, but I do need the work."

Favre was participating in practice again on Friday, at least on a limited basis.

Also participating were center John Sullivan and tight end Visanthe Shiancoe. Both were limited on Thursday, and the injury report is due out in a few hours to gauge their participation on Friday.
