Favre leads Vikings to 17-10 win over Texans

| Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2009

HOUSTON -- Brett Favre's ribs appear to be just fine.

He took plenty of hits and even delivered one.

Adrian Peterson scored on the game's first play, Favre played three quarters despite saying he might have a cracked rib, and the Minnesota Vikings beat the Houston Texans 17-10 in a preseason game Monday night.

Favre told ESPN before the game that he thinks he has a cracked rib, but the 39-year-old didn't look to be in pain while getting sacked twice and taking numerous other hits.

He drew a penalty for an illegal crackback block to the knee of Houston's Eugene Wilson when he lined up wide in the wildcat formation in the third quarter. Wilson was injured on the play.

In his second game since unretiring less than two weeks ago, Favre was 13 of 18 for 142 yards.
