Favre will be in purple - and some pink - vs. Pack
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Brett Favre will be in purple to face the Packers for the first time next week. He'll also be wearing a little bit of pink.
The NFL is honoring breast cancer awareness in October. Favre is one of four Vikings who will use pink equipment during Monday's game against Green Bay at the Metrodome, according to league spokesman Brian McCarthy.
Chad Greenway, Chester Taylor and Antoine Winfield are the others.
Favre's wife, Deanna, is a breast cancer survivor.
Designated players throughout the NFL will be wearing pink cleats, wristbands, gloves, sideline hats and captain patches among other items during October.
Favre will be facing his old team for the first time on Monday night. He signed with the Vikings this season. He spent 16 seasons with the Packers.
