End of the line? Favre inactive for season finale

DETROIT- Brett Favre is sitting out Minnesota's game at Detroit, meaning the 41-year-old quarterback's career apparently ends with him on the sideline.

The Vikings declared Favre inactive about 80 minutes before kickoff Sunday, concluding days of speculation over whether he could sufficiently recover from his Dec. 20 concussion. He also missed Minnesota's previous game at Philadelphia.

Favre's record streak of starts ended Dec. 13 when he sat out the Vikings-Giants game because of shoulder problems. That game was played in Detroit because the Metrodome roof collapsed. The Vikings are back in town Sunday to face the Lions but will again be without Favre.

Favre has come out of retirement before but has said repeatedly this season is his last.
