MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - ESPN is reporting that the Minnesota Vikings are planning to send a trainer and a coach to Mississippi to work with Brett Favre.
The purpose of the trip is to assess the quarterback's progress since he had arthroscopic surgery two weeks ago to repair a partially torn biceps tendon in his right arm, the network reported, citing an unidentified source.
The report did not specify exactly when the meeting will take place or who will go. Favre must decide if he's healthy enough to play a 19th season. Vikings coach Brad Childress has said he's eager to see Favre throw.
Favre's agent, Bus Cook, and a Vikings spokesman did not immediately return messages left Friday by The Associated Press.
