Although there was buzz at Favre's first practice with the Vikings on Tuesday afternoon that he could start against the Chiefs, it makes more sense that Sage Rosenfels and John david Booty will share QB play, with Favre playing for maybe a series or two. Favre is expected to start in the Vikings' third exhibition game at Houston on Aug. 31.
Rosenfels is expected to be Favre's backup. Rosenfels played well against Indianapolis, but several of the Colts' starting secondary players saw limited action. Rosenfels should be a capable backup and next year might be able to take over the starting job if Favre says goodbye.
