Favre will not play Friday when Vikings goes against the Cowboys

Brett Favre will not play in the Minnesota Vikings' pre-season finale Friday against Dallas.

Coach Brad Childress says he doesn't want to put Favre or any of his starters at risk of an injury so most will take a rest against the Cowboys.

Childress says he's comfortable resting Favre, 39, saying he's made enough progress in his first two-plus weeks with the team.

Favre completed 13 of 18 passes for 142 yards and a touchdown in a Vikings' win at Houston on Monday night.

Childress says he wants to see his other three quarterbacks against the Cowboys - Sage Rosenfels, Tarvaris Jackson and John David Booty.
