As far as Brett Favre(notes) updates go, this one is pretty much like all the others. He's still coming back. He's still not telling anyone about it. He still just wants to miss training camp, but doesn't want to say that out loud, because he thinks we are all very, very dumb.
But his ankle appears to be fully functional.
Favre's been practicing with a high school team in Mississippi, because that's what you do when you're like a little kid and you just like to have fun out there. According to a very brief AP article on the subject, the recently repaired ankle looks just fine.
Brett Favre looks like he’s getting along just fine on that surgically repaired ankle.
Favre worked out with some youngsters at Oak Grove High School in Hattiesburg, Miss., on Monday, then eluded reporters looking to ask him about his future by running to his truck and driving away.
As you likely know, I'm not a Favre fan, but I will say this. After last week's shameful display from ESPN, LeBron James and society, I'm happy to see any athlete moving away from reporters. It's a nice change of pace from LeBron running towards reporters, screaming "LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME! DON'T YOU WANT TO KNOW WHERE I'M TAKING MY TALENTS?"
Of course, there's no such mystery with Favre. It's become pretty clear that he'll be taking his talents back to NFL fields this fall.
