EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre practiced on a very limited basis on Friday, but his status for Sunday's game against the New York Giants remains in question.

Favre, who sat out Wednesday and Thursday, suffered a shoulder injury on his first pass attempt during last week's game against Buffalo and missed the remainder of the contest. He was diagnosed with an SC sprain to his right shoulder.

The 41-year-old, of course, has a record streak of 297 consecutive regular-season starts on the line and has also battled elbow tendinitis and a pair of broken bones in his ankle this season.

"We'll se how he progresses and will probably make a decision just prior to game time on Sunday," Vikings interim head coach Leslie Frazier said. "He was able to get out and do some things. It was good for our players to be able to see."

If Favre is unable to play, Tarvaris Jackson would get the start. Jackson replaced Favre last week and threw for 187 yards on 15-of-22 passing with two touchdowns and three interceptions in Minnesota's 38-14 victory. The Vikings have won two straight to improve to 5-7.

Starting left guard Steve Hutchinson did not participate in drills on Thursday or Friday after taking limited reps on Wednesday. Hutchinson, who had a streak of 131 straight starts (including the playoffs) snapped when he missed the Bills game, is suffering from a broken thumb. He is listed as questionable for Sunday.

Wide receiver Percy Harvin (migraine headaches) is doubtful, while defensive end Ray Edwards (ankle) is questionable.

Minnesota will be without cornerback Chris Cook (knee) and safety Tyrell Johnson (knee).
