Report: Childress visiting with Favre

Posted by: under Vikings, Brad Childress, Brad Childress, Brett Favre, Vikings quarterbacks Updated: July 19, 2010 - 2:17 PM

It sounds like Brad Childress might want an answer from Brett Favre.

The Vikings coach is in Hattiesburg today to visit with the undecided quarterback, according to a report from WDAM in Mississippi.

Favre still hasn't decided if he will play in 2010 and said last week at the ESPY awards that his surgically repaired ankle is still bothering him. Childress, who has been on vacation, and Favre were see Monday morning at the University of Southern Mississippi's 7-on-7 passing camp for area high school athletes. Favre had the arthroscopic surgery performed in late May.

Childress declined to comment to WDAM on camera about his visit but told the station, "You can fill in the blanks."
 
WDAM reported that Childress arrived in Hattiesburg on Sunday night and said he did not know how long he would stay in Mississippi. Favre has been throwing with receivers at Oak Grove High School in recent weeks.
 
Childress also went to Mississippi early in the offseason to visit with Favre but at that time put no pressure on the veteran to say if he would play a 20th NFL season.
 
If Favre does play this season, and that's what nearly everyone expects, he almost certainly won't return until the Vikings have broken training camp in Mankato.
