The money that the Jets, G.M. Mike Tannenbaum, and former head coach Eric Mangini paid for hiding Brett Favre’s arm injury last season has provided Vikings coach Brad Childress with a valuable education.
When it comes to Favre, Childress plans to disclose every nook or cranny of his body that might be hurt.
“My exact words [to him] were, ‘I don’t have an extra 25k, if I need to
list you on the injury report with every mucous membrane on your body,
I will do that,’” Childress said, per the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Favre’s name has not yet appeared on the injury report this year, despite accounts that he has a partially torn rotator cuff, cracked ribs, and sore ankles.
Next week, however, maybe we’ll see something like the list of suggested injured body parts that we’ve now posted twice, and that if we post it again someone will add a comment stating that the gag is as played as the “hello” voice made by the navel of Jerry’s girlfriend, who suffered injuries to multiple body parts when she was struck by a giant ball of oil.
