Greg Bedard of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, who broke the story of quarterback Brett Favre sending X-rays of his injured shoulder to the Minnesota Vikings yesterday, has another tidbit from an inside source.

And it is not in favor of Favre medically.

According to the source, “If you put your finger in [Favre’s] shoulder it goes right through.  That’s not a good sign.  There’s a reason why he hasn’t picked up a football yet.”

According to a report yesterday from Jeremy Schaap of ESPN, Favre had sent X-rays to the Vikings on Thursday afternoon and the team was currently evaluating them as of Friday.

The report also said that if Favre's injury did not need any major surgery, Favre would then come out of retirement to play for the Vikings.

If Favre's injury is indeed serious, it would take around six months for him to heal after surgery. And with training camp around three months away, it is not an option the Vikings would select.
