Here is one thing we can tell you with relative certainty: Minnesota coach Brad Childress was at the team's practice facility early Thursday morning. Here is video from FOX-9 in Minneapolis to prove it. This evidence could mean one of two things:

  1. Childress has already returned from a reported meeting Wednesday night with retired quarterback Brett Favre.
  2. He didn't make the trip.

ESPN has reported Favre and Childress would meet at an unidentified location sometime this week. The Star Tribune reported Wednesday that Childress took a commercial flight Wednesday afternoon. Whether that trip took place is now in doubt.

We'll continue filtering through the various reports and give you the best idea we can of what's happening. But for now, ESPN continues to report there will be a meeting at some point this week.
