Brett Favre had surgery on shoulder to return to football?

June 8, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Despite claims Brett Favre has turned down the Minnesota Vikings and will remain retired, a new development seems to indicate the deal is not dead. According to an ESPN report Sunday, Favre recently had arthroscopic surgery on his damaged right shoulder.
ESPN, citing two anonymous sources, reported the three-time NFL MVP had surgery last month to repair the torn biceps tendon that bothered him late last season with the New York Jets. This is all tracking to a possible deal with the Vikings.  A previous report indicated Favre had X-rays of his right shoulder sent to the Vikings for evaluation. Supposedly if Favre, who turns 40 in October, could avoid major surgery and makes significant progress with his shoulder he will come out of retirement.  The report stated, “Favre has thrown on a limited basis since the surgery, which occurred in late May, but has not felt close to 100 percent and would not come back unless he makes significant progress, sources said.”
