Report: Favre Has Surgery On Left Ankle

Posted by Ryan Cardinal on May 21, 2010 – 5:25 pm

According to a report by ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, Vikings QB Brett Favre underwent surgery on his left ankle earlier today at the Andrews Clinic in Gulf Breeze, Fla.  Renowned orthopedic specialist Dr. James Andrews performed the procedure on the ankle which was injured during the Vikings NFC Championship game loss to the New Orleans Saints last January.

Per the report, Favre had scar tissue and other elements of the joint cleaned up to give him a better range of motion.  The report also states that the rehab time is estimated to be four-to-six weeks.

Favre told ESPN’s Ed Werder in late April that if he were to return to the Vikings in 2010, he would need to have this procedure done, so this certainly bodes well for fans wanting to see No. 4 in purple again this fall.

UPDATE – Favre confirmed the news on his website tonight:

This is to confirm that I did have a procedure to remove some scar tissue and bone spurs from my ankle which had been bothering me for a period of time. I appreciate your concerns.

Thanks,
– Brett Favre

    Yes Finally. All we need to do now is let Favre and Bevell run the Offense and put down the conservative play style. The O line is better and CB postion improved with Lito and maybe even a few new guys.

So all you little girls out there stay away from my little hottie. And all you other Vikings fans stop asking him to come back for one more year. He is coming back for three more years. He is the strongest man alive and it is going to stay that way for many many years to come. Next year Randy Moss will be coming home…..then watch out world!!!! Percy, Sidney, Bernard, Shanco, Toby, and Moss and my man Brett as a qb…………..He will throw for 40 tds this year and 55-60 tds next year.

    if its your goal to throw ints. then tj is your guy. sure favre has had years when he through a few to many ints. but how long was his shoulder bad? also when he did it was with green bay, so that aint so bad either. i spent years @ years hating favre, but not that he wasnt good quite the contrary. and if tj wasnt a scrub seems strange no other team would take him with only a 3rd round tender. would seem alot like31 otheer g.m.s and coaches must have a preety low opinion of him also.witch is good cause i dont know it all, but that in a way confirms my opinion. and that is all it is a opinion,imno authority by any means. ive followed the vikes since there superbowl years though and was never as confident in a qb of ours since tarkinton

    Hey, I’m a BIG Favre fan. The only question I have is maybe he got the surgery for his own comfort. It does not mean that he will return. I will be glad to see him back but I’m not going nuts until word comes down one way or the other.

    It’s fun to see this man compete and play for our Vikings team. I don’t care if we go to the super bowl or not it was awesome to see our boys do well. This man Brett got a lot of football left in him, Brad Childress needs to do his part and protect him. Go watch Brett Favre’s highligths from last year and see what I am talking about. This man has at least five years of football left in him as a starter. He is by far the best we ever had at this position!! He is going to be the first and only qb who is going to take us there. Lst mont I passed out a survey at the Mall of America and 95% of the ppl from MN want him back for another four years. Respect and Love!

    If Brett takes us to the promise land this year, he will retire. He wants to go out like Elway and I sure hope that happens. It would be very difficult to find anyone on the planet who loves the Vikings more than I do and i sure hope this means he is coming back. He definitely could play another few years as long as his body holds up. And to the Pucker fool who made the comments about the Vikings: Your team has been second behind us for a few years now and that isn’t changing anytime soon. Come talk to me when your QB wins a playoff game. You have a mediocre run game, old receivers, old secondary, shotty offensive line and they can’t stop a team over 500. So do us intelligent fans a favor and just go away, you’re making a fool of yourself.

    Espn interviewed Dr. Andrews assistant and he confirmed the only reason Brett would have the surgery would be to return this season. He has had this procedure twice before so its no concern to me. He’ll be back and better than ever. Whoever compares him to TJ needs to go back to rehab cause you just fell off the wagon.

    It amazes me that someone who claims to be a packer fan could have such hatred toward the one person who gave you a winning season since the ice bowl. Enjoy the drought because you’ll never beat the vikes as long as Favres on board. As far as the interceptions he had a career low last season, not that you watch much football. Who need the brain surgery ? Stick your bottom lip over your head and swollow and we’ll sit back and watch our Favre tear you apart-AGAIN!!!! GO FAVRE!!!!!!!

    Favre4ever I agree, he will live 4 ever in packer history, but that is just what he is history. Washed up faded history. Viking fans he will not, i repeat will not win a SB in purple. Bret is messed up in the head from all the hits, and every team will beat the tar out of him in 2010, just like the saints did. Out.

    I don’t get why Packer fans are even talking about Brett. You had him & Ted decided he didn’t want him anymore. The way he was treated when he came back to Lambeau as a Viking was embararrasing. I live in WI & have always loved Brett. You have to remember, it wasn’t his choice to go elsewhere. He did more for the city of Green Bay and the Packers than anyone in recent history. You Packer fans need to move on & pray that your golden boy Rogers may someday be a fraction of the quarterback/leader that Brett is. I have come to love Brett in purple as much or more than I did when he was with the Packers. Let’s hope for at least 1 more year. GO #4.

    As a Packer fan I do thank Brett for all he did for our franchise. Now however he is the opposition so I must root against him. The team is bigger than one man no matter how important that man was to the success of the team. Brett will take his rightful place among Packer legends one day. As for the constant bashing of Packer fans as uninformed…I lived in the Twin Cities in the 90′s and all I heard from Viking fans was how much Fave sucked. Wasn’t true then isn’t true now. Look at some of these posts if you want to see real “intelligence” At least we are not a bunch of bandwagon jumpers and we have no threat of our team leaving for LA. Oh and win a SB just once. Even the Tampa Bay Buccaneerer have won a SB

    If Ted Thompsons still got a job the only time you’ll see our brett is when he comes back on gameday. The way you faithfull fans treated him last year you can bet he’ll be wearing purple in canton. BooHoo.As far as intelligence, how many superbowls did you win after the icebowl without Favre. Get use to the drought cause first time Rodgers gets a tummyache he,ll be on the bench. I agree one man doesnt win championships, but sure love our chances with him on our side. Not bandwagon jumpers, just rooting for the guys on OUR roster. OUR BRETT!OUR BRETT!OUR BRETT!

    At some point all the great players fall i.e. Jordan. Viking fans are as messed up in the head as Farve is if he/they think he will not fall. Arron Rogers future is in front of him, and Farve’s furtue is all in the past. Last, year was fun, but it’s over. If last years game with the saints is a sign of things to come in 2010, at this time next year Viking fans will be driving Farve out of town if he plays 2010. Please if you love Farve, tell him to stay home mow grass, go hunitng, play with the grand kid. After all Farve will be better in the booth if he’s not a vegatable.

    Love the packer fans who are pleading for Favre to retire. Tells me you know you can’t beat us with him playing. And who’s the one messed up in the head when you have to go to the Vikings team site to do your blogs. Get a life. Favre had a better rating last year than any year he played for the fudgepack. Things really do get better with age and he has proved that. GO FAVRE!!!!!!!!!!!!SUPERBOWL BABY !!!!!!!!!

    How do you go from 3 to 12. Sorry cant count championships when they played teams like Racine. Its all in good fun. Good luck to you too. Hope ya make it to 500 two years in a row. Soon as playoffs start and your seasons over maybe you can watch Favre finish what he started.SB!!!!Later Packer Fan.

    Hey everybody,notice all the so called Packer fans on the VIking website puting down Favre and Viking fans?What does that tell you?I was born a Packer fan before Lombardi came. Thompson did’nt want Favre because he did’nt want Rodgers sitting on the bench season after season.Rodgers is also a bargain at 1.9m a year.So Thompson figured,dump Favre at about 10m a year and near or at the end of his career and let Rodgers take over.Not a bad move because Rodgers has played well considering he played behind a poor offensive line like Favre had in the game against the (S)aints.Favre is a bargain at 12m or 13m a year.Roethlisberger and P. Manning are over 30m a year.

    Vikes will probably give the Packer two more beatdowns this season.Last season Favre and the Vikings gave Thompson the front office and the Favre haters exactly what they deserved losses (losers).

    Steven (Packer Fan) i love the take but I believe last year was a Farve freebee or a respect of Farve year. This year the Packers and the Packer fans will show no little respect for Farve, as a result Packers will win in 2010. Packers and Packer fan don’t like to lose. Eveything goes in 2010, and the Packers win.

    This is some of the best news thus far. I can’t wait to see him play some more. I can already hear the value of my Favre rookie cards going up, and up…..

    Favre is “da iron man”

  119. By STEVEN(Packer fan) on May 29, 2010 | Reply

    I think a big concern for the Vikes should be their intensity level in games they play away from home.Examples from last season were the 1st half against Arizona;lost 30-17,the entire game against Carolina;lost 26-7,and the 1st half against Chicago in which they looked like two entirely different teams,played well in 2nd half but still lost 36-30.Packers are weak at offensive line and at secondary(Woodson has nowhere to go but down after a great season at his age).Vikings have better talent on both sides of the ball but last season’s kickoff coverages need to improve.Packers will be lucky to win one of the two games against Vikings.I just hope the Packers don’t get embarrassed again like last year.
