Reported just now on ESPN by John Clayton (apparently Jeremy Schaap gets credit for the original scoop): Brett Favre has sent X-rays of his right shoulder to the Vikings for them to have a gander at. I’m assuming Brett didn’t just do this for yuks, but by Minnesota’s request. Not being a medical professional, I have no idea how much you can tell about a torn biceps tendon from looking at X-rays. Perhaps someone out there who knows something can shed light on this. My understanding has been that Brett can play with his injury, but not without pain. And if he wants to relieve said pain he can have a procedure to complete the tear of the tendon, and just play without it, like John Elway did at the end of his career. This one’s not going away yet.
Update: Schaap says the Vikings are evaluating the X-rays as we speak and – hold your breath kiddies – if they like what they see, Favre…will…be…signed.
Guess Yahoo! Sports can shove it?
Update 2: Bus Cook has chimed in. Guess what? He doesn’t know anything about any X-Rays. Does he know if he has pants on?
