    A day after reports surfaced that Brett Favre had begun telling the Minnesota Vikings he was planning to retire, Favre now says he will play this season if he thinks his surgically repaired ankle can handle it, and he denies that he told the Vikings he was retiring.

    Ed Werder of ESPN caught up with Favre in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and reported on SportsCenter that Favre said he hasn't made up his mind about playing.

    Favre also told Werder he did not send text messages to Vikings players or management officials indicating that he was planning to retire. There may be some ESPN-on-ESPN crime on this story, though, as just minutes after Werder reported that, ESPN's Chris Mortensen said on SportsCenter that Favre "sent out some text messages that led -- or misled -- some people to believe he was retiring, not that we should have believed it anyway."

    Whatever Favre said via text message, he told Werder he'll play if he can. It's still an open question whether he can, however, as Werder described Favre as "hobbling somewhat" on his ankle.

    Favre said he talked to the Vikings about when he'll make a final decision, but he wouldn't reveal when that would be. In other words, Favre will keep stringing everyone along for at least a couple more weeks.

    Maybe Shiancoe overreacted...

    As far as I know, those texts could've contained anything. And I mean, ANYTHING.

    I think ESPN mistook sexting for texting. He was sexting his teamates.

    If he comes back then I hope every, and I mean EVERY defender on the D-line will be going for his ankle.
    Hurt him and take him out.
    Yes.
    I hate the old fart that much.
    God-damn flip flopper.

    He's going to have to be stretchered off the field and be forced to retire I'm afraid. He's mental patient. At least T.O. and Ochocinco's reality shows arent on sportscenter...
