Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress, speaking on a radio show Friday, said his understanding was that quarterback Brett Favre(notes) is "pain free,'' according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
"My understanding is that he is pain free right now," Childress said. "Does he have the endurance and the stamina in that arm yet? He doesn't know that yet. It's no different than grabbing a golf club for the first time during the year when you rip around 18 holes around and you wake up the next day and your side hurts. You say, ‘Geez, I haven't felt that muscle in a while.' So he's got to build some endurance in that and see if he thinks he can get it back to where he wants to get it to."
Childress said he isn't getting daily reports from Mississippi. Vikings trainer Eric Sugarman visited Favre on Sunday to go over exercises he could do to help him recover from arthroscopic surgery he underwent in late May to repair a partially torn biceps. "There is a little bit of time here," Childress said. "It's not a foregone conclusion that he will be here."
Favre threw the ball to high school players this week and told a TV station, "I threw the ball OK, but OK isn't good enough in the National Football League."
