Childress Doesn't Know if Favre Will Play
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress recently paid a visit to Brett Favre at his Mississippi home.

But the coach says he still does not know if the quarterback will return for another season with the Vikings. Childress told KFAN radio in the Minneapolis area: "I don't know if he's going to play next year and I don't know if he knows if he's going to play next year."

Childress says he wants Favre to make the best decision for himself.

The coach also believes that Favre's surgically repaired ankle will not factor into the 40-year-old's decision. Childress says Favre is running stadium steps in a weighted jacket to slim down.

Many expect Favre to return for a 20th NFL season. Childress says he would not be surprised either way.
