EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings provided an update on the status of quarterback Brett Favre, and also placed guard Steve Hutchinson on injured reserve.

Originally listed as out for Monday night's game against the Chicago Bears, Favre has been upgraded to questionable. The 41-year-old will attempt to throw roughly two hours before kickoff at the University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium, and a final determination will be made on whether or not he can play.

Favre saw his NFL record streak of 297 consecutive regular-season starts ended last Monday when the Vikings lost to the New York Giants at Detroit's Ford Field due to a SC sprain of his right shoulder.

Hutchinson, who saw his own streak of 131 straight starts ended two weeks ago, was placed on IR with a broken thumb.

In other roster news, the Vikes promoted quarterback R.J. Archer from the practice squad to the active roster.
