EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- Brad Childress says he doesn't have an update from Brett Favre about his playing status for the season, or a possible surgery on his injured left ankle.
Childress was asked by reporters for the latest word on Favre following a team practice on Wednesday. The Minnesota Vikings head coach said he hasn't spoken with the 40-year-old quarterback recently.
Childress coyly added his answer could depend on the questioner's definition of recent. He said he's exchanged text messages with Favre during the offseason, but insisted that "texting is not talking."
Last month, Favre issued a statement on his personal website about the injury. He said his condition "is not debilitating" and that surgery is only part of his decision to play or not in 2010.
