Philadelphia (Northlands NewsCenter) - Vikings quarterback Brett Favre was among the players listed on the team inactive list for tonight's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Favre suffered a concussion in Minnesota's loss to Chicago eight days ago. He had not passed any of his concussion tests to be cleared to either practice or play.

Meanwhile, running back Adrian Peterson was not on the inactive list, and will start for Minnesota. Peterson missed the Chicago Bear game with a thigh bruise.

Tonight's game against the Philadelphia Eagles begins at 7pm and can be seen on KBJR6 and Range 11.
