Report: Childress says Favre not coming back

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress tells The Star Tribune that Brett Favre will not be coming out of retirement.

In a report posted on the newspapers' Web site on Tuesday, Childress said Favre did not want to put himself through the grind of another football season.

Favre retired for a second time after playing for the New York Jets last season. He had surgery in May to alleviate a torn biceps tendon.
