    Indeed.
    I pray this isn't actually a Lisfranc injury to the forefoot just in front of the ankle. That would require open reduction with internal fixation screw, and three months in a boot.

    Lisfranc injuries are often missed on initial xrays.
    I was just thinking the same damn thing...you beat me to it.

    OK...not really, but I did sleep at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

    LOL! The only thing I'm thinking is I'm wrong and I shouldn't be assuming anything.
    Hopefully it's something minor that can heal in a short period of time.

    Personally I never thought Brett would return anyway after the pounding the Saints gave him.
    I'm afraid it is the formula for success against older QB's.
    Worked against Warner and Farve in the playoffs.

    I would love to see him return, but I'm still skeptical.

    Ya know Doc, I think this is part of the CYA you have to do in this litigous society. Test for the worst possible scenario before you express any optomisim. Kevin Siefert, that great investigative journalist with ESPN thinks it is just minor surgery and is an excuse for missing training camp. Right. I'll go with Doc on this one.

    Is everyone forgetting about the report that came out before the draft? Steve Mariucci (Favre's first QB coach in Green Bay) talked with him and already knew how bad his ankle was.

    http://www.startribune.com/sports/vikings/91876114.html

    "He doesn't know yet," Mariucci said when asked if Favre will return. "He's trying to heal up. His body is recovered except for that ankle. That's not quite ready yet. It's an ankle that he had surgery on twice before and it's still pretty puffy. You remember he came out of that game with the ankle and went back in, but it's still swollen.

    "He's trying to determine: Is his body telling him something here? Or is he going to be feeling better in due time. He still hasn't made up his mind, and the Vikings are not rushing him. That's what's a little bit crazy about it. I thought maybe they'd say, 'Listen, could you tell us by draft day please so we could determine where we're going to go?'
    You ignore the most important words in that quote. He has already had surgery "twice before". What would make you think he would not do it again? Obviously people behind the scenes know more than Ed and people on PPO. We have a plan. We are not going to let this Super Bowl team go to waste. I don't understand how some think this front office is a bunch of idiots. If you think you can do better, apply. My best guess is that Favre will suit up one last time.

    It seems to me that if his ankle requires surgery to heal he will get it anyway. What? He is going to limp around on it the rest of his life. I think he will get the surgery and then see if its good enough to play on.

    He's probably waiting for pp.o doc's recommendation.

    Got this in an email from Favre's website:

    A Message from Brett

    I want to add to the information provided in the article that was published this morning on ESPN's website. Given the reaction to the article, and the typical conclusion jumping, I thought I'd clarify a few things.

    While my ankle has been bothering me, the injury is not debilitating. For example, I'm able to work around my property without any problems. Sure -- certain exercises cause some ankle pain, but it's nothing that I haven't experienced (or played with) before. In fact, many people don't realize that I injured my ankle before the NFC Championship game. I've had surgery on this ankle twice before, and I've played with the pain before. The hits I took throughout the 2009 season, including the Saints game, just added to the ankle pain and likely caused some bone spurs.

    I don't believe major surgery on the ankle would be required for me to return in 2010. I've consulted with Dr. Andrews on the phone, and a relatively minor procedure could be done to improve the dexterity of the ankle, and to relieve the pain. I've put up with pain worse than this in my career, and I didn't want anyone to assume that the possibility of surgery was the sole factor that would determine whether I return or not. Some people reacting to the ESPN story have made this assumption. I don't blame them for doing so, given that the term "surgery" often covers a variety of procedures, some more complex than others.

    The ankle pain is a factor, but one of many factors that I'll need to consider in making my decision. Other factors include the input of my family, and the wonderful experience that I had last year with the Vikings.
