Favre believes groin injury will be fine

From the Associated Press:

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Brett Favre is back from his bye week, saying he believes his pulled groin will be fine.

Favre was hurt during practice two weeks ago and aggravated the injury in pregame warmups at Green Bay on Nov. 1. The Vikings didn't play last week, giving the 40-year-old quarterback extra time to heal.

Favre said Wednesday the injury bothered him during the Packers game, but "not as bad" as he feared it might. He says he was concerned mostly because he'd never had the problem before.

Favre says he stayed in Minnesota during the bye. He went hunting but says all he killed was time.

The Vikings (7-1) host the Detroit Lions (1-7) this Sunday.
