Childress wouldn't be surprised either way with Favre

Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress said he got no indication one way or the other whether or not Brett Favre will return this season following a visit to the quarterback’s home.

“I don't know if he's going to play next year and I don't know if he knows he's going to play next year,” Childress said on KFAN in Minneapolis, according to Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “It would not surprise me either way. ... You don't want to do it half-cocked.”

Favre has yet to announce his plans on a decision for 2010 and the Vikings will report to training camp in Mankato, Minn., next week. Some believe the 40-year-old will wait until camp is done in mid-August to show up, citing his ankle that he had surgery on during May.

Favre recently said he gained 14 pounds since January, but Childress didn’t see an out-of-shape gunslinger on his visit.

“He didn't look any different to me. I wouldn't say he's like a puss-bucket,” Childress said. “(I’m not concerned about the ankle) based on what I saw. He ran stadium stairs with a weight vest on.”

But the Vikings are still playing the waiting game and they won’t be considered a frontrunner in the NFC without No. 4.

“I just think he's [going to do] the right thing,” Childress said.
