ESPN's Jeremy Schaap reported Friday that X-rays of Favre's right shoulder were sent to the Vikings and were being evaluated. If it is determined Brett Favre needs anything less than major surgery to repair issues related to his biceps tendon, Favre will unretire and sign with the Vikings. Yes, apparently, just like that. But if major surgery is required, Favre will remain retired. James "Bus" Cook, Favre's agent, told ESPN on Friday that he had no knowledge of any X-rays being sent to the Vikings. Of course, an MRI might have been sent instead. Cook still insists Favre hasn't told him about any plans to unretire - which would be a plausible first step in the process. The Journal Sentinel reported Wednesday that the health of Favre's right arm would ultimately decide whether he unretired for a 2nd time. Sources said then that Favre had a significant tear in the biceps tendon. If the injury proves to be relegated solely to the tendon and is a partial tear, Favre will likely play again. He could undergo a simple procedure, a tenotomy, where surgeons complete the tear of the biceps tendon - something that is not needed for a quarterback to throw. The rehab would be quick and Favre would be ready for training camp.
