GREEN BAY, Wis. -- There are no indications that the Green Bay Packers reached a truce Wednesday with quarterback Brett Favre, setting up -- at least for now -- a Friday showdown between the sides.

Packers president Mark Murphy departed a day-long meeting with Favre and his agent without commenting to reporters. Agent James "Bus" Cook, meanwhile, said Favre still wants to be the Packers' quarterback but indicated the team hasn't budged from its position that Aaron Rodgers is the starter.

"He would love to go back to Green Bay," Cook told reporters in Hattiesburg, Miss. "That's why he started working out. But right now it looks like he'll be the quarterback at Oak Grove [Miss.] High School."

Favre worked out at Oak Grove as recently as Wednesday morning. If NFL commissioner Roger Goodell reinstates him Thursday, Favre could be in Green Bay as early as Friday.

"We're going to do whatever Brett wants to do," Cook said. "And right now his intention is to go back to Green Bay and play football."
