HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) — Brett Favre dropped back, looked downfield and launched a long spiral about 5 yards past his intended receiver. A few plays later, the Jets quarterback short-hopped a toss that thumped into the grass.

Favre fired a few duds in his fifth practice since joining the Jets, saying his rocket right arm is a bit tired.

"To be honest with you, I'm surprised that, I don't want to say I feel good, that I've been able to make it through every practice so far," he said.

Favre was acquired from the Green Bay Packers late last Wednesday night, and has been practicing with the Jets since Saturday. He's set to start Saturday's preseason game against the Washington Redskins.
