Report: Trainer looks in on Favre again
ESPN.com news services
For the second time in four weeks, the trainer for the Minnesota Vikings traveled to Mississippi to assess the physical condition of quarterback Brett Favre.
According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Eric Sugarman was in Hattiesburg on Wednesday to check on Favre. The report did not indicate the condition of the surgically repaired biceps tendon in Favre's throwing arm.
Sugarman visited with Favre in June to discuss exercises Favre could do to improve shoulder strength following the arthroscopic surgery he had at the end of May.
In an interview with HBO in mid-June, Favre said he was considering a return to the NFL if his throwing arm will allow it and that the Vikings are the only team he has spoken to about a comeback.
Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
