GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -Brett Favre was held out of the Green Bay Packers' practices Wednesday and Thursday because of a sore right shoulder.
``I probably could practice, but it really don't make a lot of sense to go out and make it any worse,'' Favre said. ``I think it's probably just tendinitis or something like that.''
Coach Mike McCarthy said the medical staff doesn't consider the injury serious.
Favre, however, won't be on the field next Monday and Tuesday, when the Packers conclude their workouts.
That means the 37-year-old quarterback will have been on the field for seven of the 12 organizied-team-activity practices, which have been spread over three weeks. He also was held out of the first workout May 30.
Despite the physical setback, McCarthy was pleased with Favre's work both on and off the field as the team turns its sights to the start of training camp in late July.
``The biggest thing we got out of Brett being here No. 1 is to be around the younger guys (and) doing the adjustments we've made in our scheme getting ready for the season,'' McCarthy said. ``I was late for practice today because I was with Brett going through some of the red-zone and third-down adjustments that we've made, just finalizing that and making sure were on the same page.''
Favre will remain in the area through the weekend.
His annual celebrity softball game, which pits the Packers offense against the defense, is Sunday outside of Appleton.
Favre typically plays shortstop in the game, which raises money for the Brett Favre Fourward Foundation, but he said Thursday that he would probably be limited to being a designated hitter.
``I don't even know if that's the smart thing to do,'' Favre said.
After he returns home to Mississippi following the game, Favre said he would ease back into throwing a football in the six weeks leading up to training camp.
``Last year, I threw at my daughter's high school, with some of the kids there. I expect to do that again,'' he said. ``I had a lot of fun doing it. Plus, it helped me out a great deal.''
