Brett Favre fans are in suspense this morning, waiting for the latest development in Favre’s status with the Packers. That word is expected to come sometime after 9 a.m. in a news conference by head coach Mike McCarthy. McCarthy met with Favre alone for five hours on Monday. The two left Lambeau Field in separate cars close to 11:30 p.m. without talking to reporters.
As the meeting between Favre and McCarthy stretched on last night, McCarthy canceled a planned meeting with his players at 7:30 and a scheduled news conference at 8:15. Favre was placed on the Packers’ roster Monday after he passed a medical exam and a conditioning test. Fans are still waiting to see whether all this results in Favre being on the practice field this afternoon.
