FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- Jets quarterback Brett Favre had his ankle tightly wrapped but appeared to be walking comfortably through the locker room before today's practice as he continues to recover from a twisted left ankle.

New York's 38-year-old quarterback was injured during Monday
night's loss at San Diego. Favre wasn't available to the media before practice, but said yesterday that he was doing everything he could to get ready for Sunday's game against Arizona.

Favre has started 256 straight regular-season games. That's an
NFL record for quarterbacks. Neither he nor coach Eric Mangini
have given any indication that the iron man streak is in jeopardy.
