ESPN big-shot Ed Werder has fired his bazooka into the face of Charley Walters‘ Brett Favre will have surgery this week report:
Citing unnamed sources, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported that Favre was to meet with Andrews on Tuesday in Birmingham, Alabama, to discuss surgery on his throwing shoulder and that the procedure was expected to be performed later this week.
Favre, however, remains focused on non-surgical options, including cortisone injections and natural movements like light throwing and bicep curls that might cause the tendon to release naturally, the source told ESPN. If the tendon releases and the pain subsides, Favre is virtually certain to play again. If he has surgery and his arm strength diminishes or the pain remains, he will remain retired, the source said.
Werder, a regular Favre butt-spelunker, also says that Favre is losing patience with the whole shoulder issue, and may soon just chuck the comeback plan. Which would no doubt disappoint his wife Deanna who allegedly wants revenge on Ted Thompson like Inigo Montoya wanted it on the six-fingered man.
Another Charley Walters report goes down in flames. Actually, ESPN hasn’t exactly been a bastion of accuracy during this whole drama either. Pretty much everyone is grasping at straws right now, trying to keep this story alive. Including me.
