IRVING, Texas (AP) -Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre left Thursday night's 37-27 loss to the Dallas Cowboys with an injury to his right arm 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 grabbed his arm and flexed it while walking slowly to the sideline. Aaron Rodgers took over at quarterback on Green Bay's next possession.
With his right arm covered with a sleeve, Favre returned to the sideline after getting treatment and having an X-ray taken during halftime. He was still wearing his pads, but wore a baseball cap as he watched Rodgers quarterback the Packers.
Favre hurt his right elbow last season, leaving the Packers' 35-0 loss to New England at Lambeau Field. Rodgers relieved Favre in that game, but broke his foot.
Rodgers had played in only six games in two-plus seasons before Thursday night. He had thrown only two passes this season.
With 31 seconds left in the first half, Rodgers threw his first career touchdown pass, an 11-yarder to Greg Jennings that got the Packers within 27-17.
Newman's interception set up the Cowboys for Tony Romo's 10-yard touchdown pass to Terrell Owens that gave them a 27-10 lead.
