Childress Thinks Favre Needs Couple Weeks of Camp

Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress says that quarterback Brett Favre, who has yet to commit to the 2010 season, would need "two or three weeks" of training camp time to prepare for the regular season, Chip Scoggins of the Star Tribune reports.

"Couple three weeks is probably what he needs," Childress said. "The fact that you play [the season opener] three days earlier kind of cuts the window. Usually we go from the fourth preseason game to [having] 10 days out where you get a couple extra works days or rest days or whatever."

Childress has not placed a deadline on a decision for Favre, and reiterated that he does not know what Favre intends to do this season.

With the Vikings closing out the road portion of their pre-season schedule on August 22, Favre could conceivably report on August 23 or 24. The 40-year could make a cameo against the Seattle Seahawks on the 28th, play a little more on September 2, and be ready for the season-opener against the New Orleans Saints on September 9.
