AP Source: Favre Tells Vikings He will not Return

MANKATO, Minn. (AP) - A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that Brett Favre has informed the Minnesota Vikings he won't return for a second season.

But as always with the 40-year-old star quarterback, things
could change.

The person who spoke to the AP says Favre called coach Brad
Childress to say his injured left ankle is not responding as well
to surgery and rehabilitation as he had hoped.

The person spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the team had not made an official announcement.

Speaking to reporters after practice Tuesday, Childress wouldn't
confirm Favre's status with the team, saying he could have a new
message from the quarterback waiting for him.

The coach told reporters: "I'm not a big hearsay person. I gotta hear it from the horse's mouth."
