|Business As Usual for Viking QB's
|MANKATO, Minn. (AP) -- While Brett Favre waffles in Mississippi, his presumptive teammates are sweating through training camp in Minnesota.
It's business as usual for the Vikings.
Two veteran quarterbacks, Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels, are in limbo, trying to prepare for the season while answering questions about being a placeholder for Favre. They've done it before, and say it hasn't been a distraction even through all the twists and turns this week.
Favre is expected to play if his ankle is healthy. Jackson would be the starter if Favre decides to retire. Jackson joked that he might miss all the drama when Favre does decide to call it quits, whenever that may be.
Coach Brad Childress says his team is focused on the work at camp and Favre's indecision will not be detrimental.
