IRVING, Texas (AP) -Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre left Thursday night's NFC showdown with the Dallas Cowboys with a right elbow injury after being hit hard while throwing a pass that was intercepted.
Favre was hurt with 10:11 left in the second quarter when he was hit by cornerback Nate Jones. Terence Newman made a diving interception of the fluttering pass.
Favre got up and flexed his arm and grabbed at his wrist while walking slowly to the sideline. Aaron Rodgers took over at quarterback on Green Bay's next possession and Favre's return was listed as questionable.
Newman's interception set up the Cowboys for Tony Romo's 10-yard touchdown pass to Terrell Owens that gave Dallas a 27-10 lead.
Favre remained on the sideline, where he was tended to by team medical officials and continued to flex his right arm.
