Favre had cortisone shot, threw ball last week

What’s an offseason news cycle without a Brett Favre update?

The NFL Network confirmed Tuesday that the retired quarterback, who is in the process of determining if his right shoulder is healthy enough to let him return next season, had a cortisone shot and threw the ball last week.

Favre confidant and former NFL coach Steve Mariucci chatted live on NFL.com on Tuesday and said that Favre had consulted a physician to receive another opinion on his torn biceps tendon, a move that presumably would be at the request of a team — a team such as the Vikings.

We know from earlier conversations that Favre has always preferred to avoid surgery. The fact that he resumed throwing and had a recent cortisone shot supports the line of thinking that surgery is indeed a last resort for Favre. As for what’s next, it looks as if both he and the Vikings are in the process of evaluating the situation.
