With the Vikings eagerly waiting, QB Brett Favre has sought the advice of a noted surgeon about his beat-up throwing arm, according to the latest report on the quarterback's status.Citing an anonymous source, ESPN.com reported that Favre consulted orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews about options for healing the partially torn biceps tendon that has caused pain in his right shoulder. Andrews is one of the most consulted surgeons in pro sports.The Jets released him last month, making him free to sign with the Vikings or any other team, but Favre has expressed a disinterest in surgery. According to the ESPN.com report, Andrews and Favre experimented with an exercise regimen that could allow the tendon to tear naturally and thus avoid an operation. Earlier this week, president Mark Wilf acknowledged the team's interest in Favre. Asked whether the 18-year veteran has told the Vikings he wants to stay retired, Wilf hinted that Favre's interest in making another comeback hinges on his health. "That type of decision is up to Brett Favre, and I'll leave it to Brett Favre to give you that answer," he said.
