EDEN PRAIRIE, MINN. (AP) - Brett Favre returned to practice for the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday, one day after sitting out to rest his sore right elbow.
Favre has been bothered by tendinitis in his throwing elbow and said earlier this week that he would consider sitting out a game or two to rest it if the condition worsens. Favre has started an NFL-record 289 straight regular season games.
Center John Sullivan also returned to practice after missing Wednesday with a calf injury. Sullivan did not play against the Jets on Monday night.
Tight end Visanthe Shiancoe, safeties Madieu Williams and Jamarca Sanford, defensive lineman Brian Robison and cornerback Chris Cook also were limited in practice Thursday.
The Vikings host the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
