Childress says he called Favre last week. Thats the latest update from Minnesotas coach, who didnt elaborate on the conversation. Childress sidestepped most questions about the quarterbacks status Thursday, refusing to speculate while Favre officially remains retired.
The Vikings have one more organized practice this week, their last scheduled activity until training camp begins July 31. Childress declined to answer when asked if he needs clarity on the situation before then.
In a radio interview Wednesday, the coach said hes eager to see what Favre has left in his arm, which reportedly was surgically repaired after the end of last season.
