Minneapolis, Minnesota

Friday, June 20, 2009 - Coach Brad Childress of the Minnesota Vikings called in to local sports radio station KFAN and commented about the status of Brett Favre. When asked about Favre's throwing arm "Chilly" said that there is "no pain" when Brett throws. Childress added the only challenge ahead for the quarterback decision is Farve's stamina and endurance.

Back up to Wednesday, June 18, 2009 - Brett Favre had been reported to have worked out with a local high school team in Mississippi yesterday. With no pads on, Favre threw passes to a few of the players at Oak Grove High School. After his work out Brett granted an interview to local TV station WDAM-TV and reporter Mitch Williams.

When asked how he felt Favre replied: "It feels okay... I threw the ball today a couple different times (and) I felt it.. different places where it's sore" and added that Friday will be the end of the fourth week since his arthroscopic surgery was performed. Favre commented that he "might throw different" and that "okay is not good enough" (in the NFL) or for him.

The veteran quarterback seemed to throw very well on camera so the rest may be working the post surgery bugs out in his shoulder. The surgery performed on Favre's biceps can take four to six weeks to recover and up to six months before contact sports should be resumed.

Who's telling the truth? Favre says he "feels it" and Childress says "no pain".
