GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Brett Favre won't be doing any heavy throwing again for a while.

Swinging a softball bat also might pose a challenge.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback says he has a sore right shoulder - his throwing shoulder - which prematurely ended his participation in the organized team activities the Packers have been involved in.

Favre said today he probably could practice, but it didn't make sense to do it and risk making the problem worse.

He says it's probably just tendinitis or something like that.

The team held Favre out of practice yesterday and today.

Coach Mike McCarthy said the medical staff doesn't consider the injury to be serious.

Favre, however, won't be on the field next Monday and Tuesday, when the Packers conclude their workouts.

Favre holds his annual celebrity softball game Sunday and says he'll probably be a designated hitter instead of playing shortstop for the Packer offense.
