Report: Favre sent X-rays to Vikings

The Brett Favre soap opera took yet another turn Friday as reports have surfaced that Favre has sent X-rays of his injured right shoulder to the Vikings and, if it is deemed that he won't require "major" surgery, the door would again be opened for Favre to sign with the team.

Just when you thought the Brett Favre-to-the-Vikings saga was over, we're pulled back into the intrigue.

According to a report Friday from Jeremy Schaap of ESPN, Favre sent X-rays to the Vikings Thursday of his injured right shoulder. Schaap said the Vikings' medical staff is evaluating the X-rays and, if it is determined that "major" surgery is not required, Favre will un-retire and sign with the Vikings.

However, the report added that if major surgery is needed, Favre will likely not have the surgery and will remain retired – this time most likely for good.

This latest report comes a day after a story on Yahoo! Sports said that Favre contacted Vikings head coach Brad Childress and said he planned to remain retired. Childress was scheduled to meet with Favre at his home earlier this week, according to multiple reports, but that trip was subsequently canceled.

Favre's agent, Bus Cook, told ESPN Friday that he has no knowledge of any X-rays being sent to the Vikings.

Viking Update will update this ongoing story when and if circumstances warrant, but an NFL.com report said Favre isn't expected to address the issue this weekend.
