QB Brett Favre has re-joined his teammates at Winter Park in Eden Prairie, but there are still a few hoops to jump through before the future Hall of Famer is officially back in the fold and ready to go. So what’s next? Let’s take a quick look at how things should unfold on Wednesday…
The remaining hoops to jump through likely include contract details, roster maintenance and a physical. Once those issues are addressed and if there are no unexpected developments, Favre could potentially participate in his 1st practice of the 2010 season. The Vikings are scheduled to practice for 2 hours late Wednesday morning and it wouldn’t be shocking to see #4 out with his teammates.
Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress will meet with reporters following practice; that press conference will be streamed live on vikings.com. If Favre is able to participate in practice on Wednesday, he might also meet with reporters. The Vikings issued a press release late Tuesday notifying the media of Childress’ availability following practice and also stating that Favre’s availability was TBD. It’ll be interesting to hear what Childress – and potentially Favre – have to say about Tuesday’s developments, from the idea of sending 3 veteran players down to Mississippi to what finally factored into the QB’s decision to decide.
After all of that, it’ll be business as usual for Favre and the Vikings as the team will continue preparations for Sunday night’s preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers. Another burning question today will be about Favre’s status for Sunday night. Will he play? We’ll hear officially from Childress later today, but my guess is that he’ll suit up and play a series before giving way to Tarvaris Jackson, Sage Rosenfels and potentially Joe Webb.
