EDEN PRAIRIE, MINN. (AP) - Brett Favre is still out of action with the Minnesota Vikings.

Favre was not on the field during the portion of Saturday’s practice that was open to reporters, further increasing the chance that Favre will sit out for a second straight game on Monday when the Vikings play the Chicago Bears.

Favre’s NFL-record streak of 297 consecutive starts ended last Monday when the Vikings played the New York Giants. He said this week his sprained throwing shoulder is still bothering him and that he’s also still experiencing numbness in his hand.

Running back Adrian Peterson was back at practice Saturday after sitting out the past two days as a precaution because of ankle and knee issues. Interim coach Leslie Frazier expects Peterson to play against the Bears.
