EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Brett Favre won't be missing his first game against the Green Bay Packers.

The Minnesota Vikings quarterback is listed as probable for the showdown on Monday night. Favre has been limited in practice all week because of a sore right foot, but he will make his 273rd consecutive start.

All-Pro left guard Steve Hutchinson is listed as questionable with a back injury. He missed the first two practices of the week and participated on a limited basis on Saturday. Coach Brad Childress says he thinks Hutchinson will be fine.

Punt returner Darius Reynaud is doubtful with a hamstring injury.

Also listed as probable are cornerback Cedric Griffin, linebacker E.J. Henderson, tight end Jim Kleinsasser and punter Chris Kluwe.
