TEMPE - Three days after what he said was the first concussion of his career, Max Hall practiced Wednesday and said he was eager to prove he is a better quarterback than he showed in Seattle on Sunday.

Hall said he's "good to roll" for Sunday's home game against Tampa Bay, but coach Ken Whisenhunt was more cautious, saying he would have to see how the rookie does throughout the week.

Hall completed 4 of 16 passes for 36 yards against the Seahawks. He was intercepted once and fumbled the ball away on a blindside sack in the third quarter that knocked him out of the game.

"It was everything from having the ball slip out of my hands to making bad reads to not seeing a blitzer," Hall said. "There's just a lot of things that I need to get better at."

Favre says he hopes to be able to play

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - Brett Favre sure does not look like a guy ready to play in four days, not with an oversized walking boot covering most of his left leg.

But who would bet against the Vikings' 41-year-old quarterback?

Whether it's reckless pride, simple determination or an exceptional tolerance, he's played through all kinds of pain and never sat out.

His NFL-record streak is at 291 games started, 315 including the playoffs. Naturally, Favre is not ruling himself out for Sunday's game at New England, despite two fractures in his left ankle.

"I would love to play, for no other reason but I'm in this, committed to this team," Favre said. "I'd love to get this back on track and be a part of it, and more than anything, function at a level that gives us a chance to win. That's basically it."

Coach Brad Childress has kept his options open.

"I wouldn't put it past him. He's going to make the push."

Extra points

• The Colts ruled out four players for Monday night's game with Houston. They are: receiver Austin Collie (surgery, right thumb); defensive tackle Antonio Johnson (knee surgery); safety Bob Sanders (surgery, torn biceps muscle after season opener); and linebacker Kavell Conner (foot surgery earlier this season).

• Packers linebacker Brad Jones is out for the season after suffering a right shoulder injury that will need surgery. The Packers put Jones on injured reserve.

• Vince Young's left knee and ankle are feeling good enough that the Tennessee quarterback returned to practice after spraining his leg on Oct. 18. Whether he plays Sunday when the Titans visit San Diego remains to be seen. Coach Jeff Fisher says the key to Young starting Sunday will be how the quarterback is able to move and if he can be effective under center.
