Former Packers' LeRoy Butler has said Brett Favre 'isn't human', according to reports.

The former safety commented on his former team mate saying the quarterback is like a superhero, according to an interview he did with ESPN.

"I don't think he's human," said the four-time All-Pro: "Whenever it's his time to leave this earth, I want to see the X-rays. I don't believe it. He's not human.

"I'm telling you the guy's a mixture of Wolverine, RoboCop and Superman."

Butler, who played for the Packers from 1990-2001, remembers when Favre sprained his ankle against the Minnesota Vikings in 1995. He remembers taking one look at and thinking he can't play the following week.

"That thing was yellow, green, orange and brown. I said, 'Dude, you can't play next week.'"

Favre had other ideas though, and wasn't looking for a second opinion.

The former safety said: "He looked at me and said, 'Roy Lee -- that's what he called me -- there ain't a damn thing wrong with my arm.

"He said, 'There ain't nothing wrong with the chicken wing.'"

Favre went on and played the following week, throwing five touchdowns against the Chicago Bears. Showing off his super human strength and resilience.

Along with the fact the 11-time Pro Bowler played 297 consecutive starts, you can see why Butler thinks he is not human. His resilience has set up an NFL record that will be a struggle for any future player to break.

The three-time NFL MVP was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame last weekend, taking the field in front of a over 67,000 crowd at Lambeau Field. He is expected to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame next year.
