Wootton knocks out Favre

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Corey Wootton first career sack could end up being the final play of Brett Favre's Hall of Fame career.

The rookie defensive end from Northwestern beat Vikings Pro Bowl tackle Bryant McKinnie early in the second quarter, spun the veteran quarterback around and slammed him to the turf. It appeared that Favre's left shoulder, not his previously injured right one, hit the turf first.

Favre spent several minutes on the ground before walking off the field with what was described as a head injury. He was replaced by rookie Joe Webb.

That was one hard hit on Favre! I was surprised at the sack because Peppers was not on the field when it happened. With Wootten and Melton coming up again next year with a bit more experience, barring injuries, the Bears could have a substantive pass rush for years to come.
