According to Peter King of SI.com, the Minnesota Vikings organization likely wants a decision from retired quarterback Brett Favre on if he plans on coming back to the NFL by this weekend.

Favre has met with Dr. James Andrews in Alabama about an injured tendon in his right arm that is causing him pain.

From King, the Vikings want to know if he plans on coming back because they want to know the future of their quarterback position as early as possible.

It is known that Favre most likely doesn't want surgery, even if it's minor. For the pain in his arm to go away, the tendon would have to completely tear. The only other way for him to tear the tendon in his right arm is by natural movements. The problem with this is nobody knows when the tendon would tear.

Surgery rehab would take from six to eight weeks. Stay tuned.
