EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre was back to throwing passes in individual drills on Thursday and also was a limited participant in team drills.
"He made some throws," coach Brad Childress said.
Favre, who is battling tendinitis in his throwing elbow, also ran around some as a defensive back during the brief portion of practice reporters were allowed to watch.
He's been wearing a sleeve on the elbow during practice for a week but didn't wear it in Monday's loss to the New York Jets.
Though his status for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys doesn't seem to be in doubt, Favre said on Wednesday he would consider sitting out a game at some point if the elbow doesn't improve.
Center John Sullivan (calf) and saety Jamarca Sanford (back) also were in pads after sitting out on Wednesday. The only player missing was guard Chris DeGeare (ankle), who was in a walking boot on Wednesday.
Childress made clear earlier this week that Sullivan's status remained iffy. Jon Cooper would make his first NFL start on Sunday if Sullivan, who was wearing a wrap on the calf, can't go.
"He got in there and moved around, too," Childress said. "Probably not full-speed, but he did enough to service a little bit."
