GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -Brett Favre took a big hit that left him feeling a bit woozy.
On Monday, Favre was the same old ironman.
``I just checked on him, he checked out fine,'' Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. ``He's not even on the medical list.''
The three-time MVP took a hard hit late in the third quarter in Green Bay's 34-0 victory over Minnesota on Sunday when Vikings defensive end Kenechi Udeze caught Favre's head and jarred his neck as Favre tried to slide for a short gain.
Udeze received a 15-yard personal foul penalty on the play and Favre, in his 246th consecutive start, stayed down for a moment, but remained in the game.
``It was legit,'' Favre said after the game. ``I had people say, 'Man, good job baiting them into the call.' I can find better ways to draw the call. ... I was conscious of what was going on, but I was a little woozy.''
Backup Aaron Rodgers was on call just in case, but McCarthy had first-year running back Ryan Grant play doctor and quickly check out Favre, a 17-year veteran, before the next play.
``I could talk to him, and he kept saying he was OK, and Ryan Grant, I spoke to him right after the play and told him to go look at his eyes to see if he was OK,'' McCarthy said.
Two plays later, Favre attempted to throw a pass from his knees that fell incomplete, though the Packers later scored on the drive.
``We haven't worked on that yet,'' McCarthy said smiling. ``It's not advised.''
McCarthy even joked about how the coaches graded Favre from film study of the game.
``Minus footwork,'' McCarthy said. ``I don't think it had anything to do with him being hit in the head. You'd like to give him a mulligan there.''
Favre, who has been on the injury report nearly 50 times in the past, had his sixth 300-yard game in the last seven and his numbers are on par right now with his MVP seasons. Favre has thrown 16 touchdowns to eight interceptions and has completed 67.2 percent of his passes for an NFL-best 2,757 yards.
He also threw to 10 different receivers on 46 attempts, something McCarthy said they rarely accomplished when McCarthy was quarterbacks coach in Green Bay in 1999. McCarthy said Favre and the receivers have established a rhythm.
``I thought they played at a very high level in the passing game,'' McCarthy said. ``When you're able to control the clock for 40 minutes and you're throwing the ball that much, I think it's a tribute to the offense, not only the perimeter but the protection.''
