Report: Favre Not Meeting To Discuss Surgery
By By Jay Sorgi
One published report, from the St. Paul Pioneer Press, says that former Packers quarterback Brett Favre was set to meet Tuesday with a renowned doctor to discuss surgery about his partially torn biceps tendon in his right throwing shoulder.
According to another published report, that information is incorrect.
A source tells ESPN that Favre will not be meeting with Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Alabama on Tuesday, and he doesn't believe surgery on the tendon is imminent.
According to the source, Favre is focusing on cortisone injections, light throwing and biceps exercises that might allow the tendon to completely tear on its own.
Should the pain subside from a complete tendon release, Favre will play a 19th NFL season and he will do it with the Minnesota Vikings, an NFC North rival.
If Favre's condition requires arthroscopic surgery, he will stay retired.
