Vikings coach Brad Childress did not give Brett Favre a deadline to make his decision on whether to play when he visited his quarterback in Mississippi last week.
But Childress said he has a general idea of how long Favre will need to get ready if he does -- as everyone expects -- return for his 20th season. Childress said Favre needs "two or three weeks" of camp to prepare.
"Close to the same period as last year," he said.
Childress said Monday morning that he still doesn't know what Favre will do. It's highly unlikely that Favre will announce his decision while the team is in Mankato the first two weeks of camp.
