Favre arrives in Minnesota

A plane carrying Brett Favre landed in Minnesota and the quarterback could be ready to join the Vikings for the 2010 season.

Minneapolis television stations carried Favre’s arrival live.

Favre’s  personal website indicated Tuesday that news about the future Hall of Fame quarterback’s playing future could soon be revealed.

The Vikings didn’t have an official statement on Favre Tuesday night, but released a media schedule for Wednesday, announcing head coach Brad Childress would speak for about two hours following the team’s practice. The announcement said Favre’s media availability was to be determined.

Three  of Favre’s  teammates, kicker Ryan Longwell, guard Steve Hutchinson and defensive  end Jared  Allen, were absent from practice Tuesday morning and the Minneapolis  Star-Tribune  reported that the  trio traveled to Favre’s home in Mississippi in an effort to convince him to return for the upcoming season.

Favre  has  yet to  announce a  final decision  as he  continues to debate the health  of  his injured left  ankle. He underwent surgery  in May to have scar tissue and bone spurs removed.

Two weeks ago, the Star-Tribune reported that Favre had decided to not play in 2010 because the ankle injury had not responded well to treatment. It has been speculated that the Vikings may have asked Favre to take some more time before coming to a final verdict.

It  was a year ago this week that Favre decided to end a second retirement and play for the Vikings. He has one year remaining on the two-year deal he signed last August 18.
