We might be getting closer to figuring out if QB Brett Favre will return for his 20th season. Famed surgeon Dr. James Andrews told the Associated Press on Wednesday that Favre’s ankle surgery went well, and after a few weeks of rehabilitation, he should be ready to decide if he’ll make his retirement permanent.
Even at the age of 40, Favre had one of the best seasons of his career last year. Despite the last-minute interception that doomed the Vikings in the playoffs – a less-than-uplifting end to his career if he, in fact, chooses that option – the 11-time Pro Bowler recorded a career-high 68.4 completion percentage for 4,202 yards, 33 touchdowns and seven INTs.
At this point, the smart money says Favre, with a healed ankle, will return once again.
