ESPN: Brett Favre has been told by doctors that pain in his right
shoulder is from a torn biceps tendon and some calcification in
the area, but the Jets QB would need nothing more than
arthroscopic surgery to repair the injury, sources said. The
sources Tuesday also said the 39-year-old Favre might be able to
avoid an arthroscopic procedure altogether if he decides to play a
19th NFL season. While playing with what is described as a partial
tear of the biceps tendon, Favre contributed to the late-season
Jets collapse with 9 interceptions and only 2 TD passes in the
final 5 games. Favre has been encouraged to take as much time as
he needs before determining whether to return to the Jets.
According to a source, Favre is expected to deliberate for several
weeks, perhaps to allow New York time to hire former coach Eric
Mangini's successor. Mangini was fired Monday after 3 seasons.
Favre had complained about pain and seemed to suffer diminished
arm strength late in the season.
