MINNEAPOLIS - Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre left Sunday's 38-14 win over the Buffalo Bills with a shoulder injury and did not return.

Favre, starting his 297th consecutive regular-season game, suffered the injury on his first pass attempt. On third down, he rolled to his right and was hit from behind by Arthur Moats. After Drayton Florence picked off the fluttering pass, Favre was helped to the sidelines.

"We'll do an MRI tomorrow. X-rays were negative, nothing broken thank goodness," Favre said. "I'll take it day by day, but I'm not overly concerned right now."

Tarvaris Jackson took over on the next series and Favre stayed on the bench for a few minutes before heading to the locker room. Favre emerged from the locker room later in the first half but did not re-enter the game.

Jackson threw for 187 yards on 15-of-22 completions with two touchdowns and three interceptions as the Vikings improved to 5-7 this season.
