Vikings’ Brett Favre Has Surgery To Repair Ankle

May 21, 2010   ·     ·   Jump to comments

ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting that Vikings QB Brett Favre underwent surgery to repair damage in his ankle and improve his mobility.
Favre was seen entering the Andrews Institute for Orthopedics and Sports Medicine in Gulf Breeze, FL. It has been confirmed that Dr. Andrews performed the surgery on Favre's injured left ankle.
While this does not necessarily mean that Favre will return for the 2010 NFL season, it opens the door to the possibility of the 40-year-old coming back for another year. Favre said he would have to undergo surgery to repair the ankle if he was going to play football again.
The recovery time for this type of surgery is six weeks. That puts Favre on a timeline where he can start running and throwing around the start of training camp.
Even though this isn't conclusive evidence, it's a good sign for the Vikings and anyone else hoping for a Favre return in 2010.
Speedy recovery, Brett.
