“He is pushing to see if he feels like he can make it back. He is not
going to play this game unless he can play the way that everybody is
used to seeing him play, and it is a work in progress,” Childress said
earlier this week, according to Sid Hartman of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “I know everyone gets concerned about, is it the
fourth of the July, is it the week of the 13th, is it the week of the
20th now, when is it going to be?
“It doesn’t have to be a minute before training camp, but I think if he
is going to do that, he won’t miss a day of training camp.”
Childress can afford to be so nonchalant, likely because he knows what is obvious from Favre’s comments on Wednesday — Favre is definitely coming back.
And as Michael Lombardi of NFLN pointed out to us via Twitter earlier tonight, the video of Favre’s remarks that aired on Total Access make it even more clear.
Favre is definitely coming back.
And so barring a tractor mishap or an alligator attack (yeah, we’re using some of our Twitter shtick here), Favre will be suiting up in purple on the first day of training camp.
