Dave Hutchinson of the Newark Star-Ledger, citing a source from ESPN.com, had a report that quarterback Brett Favre underwent an MRI on Saturday, December 26, 2008 and that no major surgery would be required for a shoulder injury that Favre suffered late last season with the New York Jets.

Per Mike Florio of Profootballtalk.com, where this piece was published, this bit of information could be interesting regarding the latest news of information that came to our attention on Friday afternoon.

Reports came in that Favre had sent X-rays of his right shoulder to the Minnesota Vikings for evaluation. Also in the reports were the beliefs that if Favre didn't need any major surgery on his shoulder, he would un-retire for a second consecutive year to play for the Minnesota Vikings.

To sum up, Profootballtalk.com released this article mistakenly, thinking that the Saturday in the report was this weekend, when in fact it was December, 2008.

I found it interesting however that if Favre didn't need major surgery then, would he now?
