Roundup: Vikings coach Childress will wait on Favre

Brett Favre told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he’s eyeing July 30 as a deadline to tell the Vikings whether or not he’ll play for them this coming season.

Vikings coach Brad Childress is willing to wait, he told the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

    “He is pushing to see if he feels like he can make it back. He is not going to play this game unless he can play the way that everybody is used to seeing him play, and it is a work in progress,” Childress said earlier this week. “I know everyone gets concerned about, is it the fourth of July, is it the week of the 13th, is it the week of the 20th now, when is it going to be?
    “It doesn’t have to be a minute before training camp, but I think if he is going to do that, he won’t miss a day of training camp.”
