    Shoulder specialist Dr. David Altchek believes Brett Favre's arm injury won't prevent him playing again.

    "Worst-case scenario, he would have to have minor surgery," said Altchek. "Otherwise, (the Vikings) should be in good shape. I don't think this is the kind of problem where you say, 'Uh-oh.'" Altchek said Favre's best option would be a biceps tenotomy, which would take six to eight weeks of rest and rehab before throwing again. "As a team physician, I wouldn't be worried about this at all," he said.
