Rumor Is That Brett Favre Will Decline Ankle Surgery

According to Charley Walters of the Pioneer Press in Minneapolis, there's a rumor making the rounds that Brett Favre will not have ankle surgery prior to the 2010 season.  

This jives with a statement Favre released last week:

I don't believe major surgery on the ankle would be required for me to return in 2010. I've consulted with Dr. Andrews on the phone, and a relatively minor procedure could be done to improve the dexterity of the ankle, and to relieve the pain. I've put up with pain worse than this in my career, and I didn't want anyone to assume that the possibility of surgery was the sole factor that would determine whether I return or not.

Once again, Favre has found a way to keep his name in the headlines throughout the offseason.
