Favre Goes Under the Knife

At long last, QB Brett Favre today underwent surgery to remove bone spurs from his left ankle. He's been putting this off for several years and finally decided to get things cleaned up.

Here's the statement from Packers' GM Ted Thompson as posted on the Packers website: "Quarterback Brett Favre underwent minor ankle surgery this morning in Green Bay. The procedure went as expected and he is recovering at this time. We expect no complications and that he will be cleared to participate in offseason workouts similar to his schedule in 2006."

Media reports are stating that the recovery time is typically 6 weeks. So, assuming no complications, Brett will be ready to go when he needs to be.
