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.
