According to ESPN’s Kevin Seifert, amongst other outlets, Calvin Johnson will play despite not practicing all week. Johnson was questionable until yesterday with an ankle injury.
Meanwhile, Vikings QB Brett Favre will not play in what he has said will be his final game ever. Of course, Brett Favre’s not really sure about that, because he’s never sure. He passed a preliminary concussion test yesterday, creating speculation that he’d play, but that is not the case. What a miserable year it has been for the gunslinging, inappropriate text messaging, Wrangler-man.
