FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -Brett Favre walked with only a slight limp Thursday as the New York Jets quarterback continued to recover from a twisted left ankle.
The 38-year-old Favre, injured Monday night in New York's loss at San Diego, had his ankle tightly wrapped and appeared to walk comfortably through the locker room before practice.
He took part in warmup jogs and moved side-to-side well, and dropped back and threw with no noticeable discomfort in the half-hour of practice the media are allowed to watch. Favre took one awkward step on a handoff and appeared to grimace, but seemed fine afterward.
``He was able to get a little bit of action (Wednesday),'' coach Eric Mangini said before practice, ``and I think it will be a little bit more today.''
When asked if that included 11-on-11 drills, Mangini said: ``Yeah, there's a little bit of that and we'll progress as he progresses.''

Favre has started 256 straight regular-season games, an NFL record for quarterbacks, and neither he nor Mangini has seemed concerned the iron man streak was in jeopardy. He was listed as limited at practice on the team's injury report Wednesday afternoon, and his status was likely to remain the same Thursday.
