Vikings QB Favre may have had surgery this week

I came across an odd story this morning, one claiming a certain “old QB” was taking up a famous surgeon, Dr. Andrews time this week, down in Mississippi.

In an article from (by John Holler):

As most fans know, getting confirmation on anything Favre-related is a difficult proposition at best. Favre isn’t talking. Agent Bus Cook refused to confirm anything surgery-related with Favre last year, and the Vikings don’t talk about offseason injury information.

But, VU is tracking a different angle to this story. A fellow professional athlete, whose family requested that he remain anonymous, is a patient of Dr. Andrews and has had surgery performed by the famous surgeon, who has been the go-to doctor for athletes in all major professional sports. The player, who has had a prolonged relationship with Dr. Andrews and his staff, called his Alabama clinic Thursday morning to set up an appointment.

He was informed that Dr. Andrews was out of town this week and, as part of that conversation, was told that Dr. Andrews was “in Mississippi working with an old quarterback” this week to perform a procedure on a client.

So who knows, maybe Favre’s little promise to the U of Mississippi’s baseball team,  was his way of dropping a hint that he has had the surgery? The world may never know…
