Brett Favre will resume right where he left off.
Favre will start in the Vikings' second preseason game Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported Friday.
Favre will play a series or two, ideally about 10 snaps.
"That's about all he needs right now and all he's ready for right now," Childress said
Favre returned to the Vikings on Tuesday after spending much of the summer debating a return to the NFL after offseason surgery on his left ankle.
He first practiced with the team on Wednesday and by all accounts, has looked fine.
"I think he's doing a good job of rounding into it," Childress said. "We haven't chased him around yet. We're saving that for later."
Favre has said this will be his 20th and final season.
