Vikings Take Active Role in Favre's Recovery

ESPN says that, yes, a trainer from the Vikings did make the journey to Mississippi to meet Brett Favre and, yes, they did discuss Brett’s shoulder (I don’t know what else they would’ve discussed – the situation in Iran maybe?).  The report goes on to say that the trainer suggested exercises to Brett that might help the recovery process.  In other words, the Vikings are not merely standing by while Brett gets his shoulder right, they are actively participating in said recovery, just like he was already a member of the team.

It’s possible that we will learn more tonight when Favre appears on the debut episode of Joe Buck‘s new HBO show, which is set to air at 8 pm central.  I don’t have HBO, but if I’m able to get a pirated stream online (did I just say that on a public blog?), I will probably post some tweets about what Brett says.  You can follow me on Twitter at  Or click the little button over there in the sidebar.

    Who cares what ESPN says. Do you have this information from any CREDIBLE sources?

  • Mike

    The source at ESPN was Ed Werder.  Enough said.

  • Jim

    So first ESPN reports that they were planning on visiting him, and now they’re reporting that the trainer did make the trip.

    Hey guys, lets give some props to ESPN for at least one thing.  At least the two stories aren’t contradicting each other.

  • Jim

    ESPN story is now confirmed.

  • All Day 28

    From the interview it just seems like its only a matter of time, im sure a deal is done and they will announce it when Brett is ready. He wants to avoid all the media circus and I cant blame him for that. Welcome aboard Favre
