Brett Favre is practicing with the Minnesota Vikings (Vikings.com supplies the photographic evidence) and will address the media when practice ends, at roughly 2:30 p.m. EDT.

When he was the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins, Jimmy Johnson said he treated star players differently than the way the Minnesota Vikings are handling the "return" of Brett Favre.
"All of our star players ... I expected them to be on time," Johnson told "the Dan Patrick Show." "At the head coach's choosing I may sit them out of practice. They had privileges because they were great performers, but they were still expected to do everything everybody else did."

It's another day in BrettWorld.
After a morning Minnesota Vikings practice in which he may, or may not, participate after taking a team physical Wednesday, quarterback Brett Favre is expected to appear at a 2:30 p.m. EDT press conference in which he will announce that he will return for his 20th NFL season.
Unless he, you know, changes his mind.
"Circus in Winter Park,'' Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe tweeted.
There's even talk in Minnesota that Favre, whose indecision was fueled by his slow recovery from ankle surgery in May, might play Saturday in the Vikings' preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Favre factoid of the day: It has been 898 days since he first retired with the Green Bay Packers. (via Darren Rovell)
Redskins move practice time: Because of the rain, the Redskins pushed their 8:30 a.m. practice to 2 p.m. That means there'll be no walkthrough at 4.
It's raining hard and I'm headed to work. As coach Gibbs use to say "This is Redskin weather". Hmmmmm
Chris Russell of ESPN980 reports that WR Mike Furrey tells him he feels "about the same" as he recovers from a concussion.
Galloping ghosts: At least in Minnesota, players are seeing an actual living, breathing person. In New Orleans, the Saints were talking about apparitions. Reggie Bush reported on Twitter:
"Having a debate about spirits and ghosts withy teammates. Do you believe in them and what would you do if you saw one while home alone?
My teammate said he saw one while watching tv at home by himself! If that were me???? House woulda been for sale the NEXT DAY!!!!
This whole conversation is stemming from that new movie "The Last Exorcism!" Def won't be watching that movie! Shoot I live by myself! Lol!
I remember when I was little and my mom used to watch Unsolved Mysteries! That show use to scare the hell outta me! I'd go straight to sleep
My boy asked me if I was going to see that movie called Devil? I said uuuhhhh it's called Devil! Hell no!"
It's Favre's fault: People are dispensing wisdom like Pez on Twitter today.
When you read "Self" magazine aren't you always a little disappointed that there's nothing about you in there?
