Among the questions surrounding the Vikings -- Will Brad Childress be fired? Is the team coming apart? -- is whether Brett Favre just up and retires. It sure sounded like it Sunday. ... If he's going to come back, then he's going to have to talk himself into it. When he left Sunday, it was for good. That was not "see you later." It was goodbye. Twice he was asked if he's committed to finishing the season. He would not make promises. "I came back for a Super Bowl," he said. "But also, I knew there was a chance it wouldn't happen." What do you mean you're going to re-evaluate? "I have no idea," he said, smiling. "That was just an answer." (FanHouse)Comment
A Sunday MRI revealed a torn ligament in Udonis Haslem's left foot, and he is now on the shelf indefinitely. Heat president Pat Riley said Sunday night that he expects Haslem will play again this season but doesn't know when. The Heat is bringing in a specialist to evaluate Haslem on Monday, after which a more definitive timetable will be known. Asked if Haslem could miss the season, Riley said, "We don't know right now. With him, I doubt if he'll miss the year, but let's wait until [Monday] to get the final determination of what it is." ... Haslem's loss is a huge setback for a team that ranks 19th in the NBA in rebounding and has been hurt badly on the glass in several games. (The Miami Herald)Comment
While his team has won two straight with a 38-year-old backup quarterback and a coach few thought would lose the "interim" label, Tony Romo was working out his arm. For the first time since suffering a broken left collarbone against the New York Giants on Oct. 25, [Romo] did some light throwing before Sunday's game against Detroit. Romo is scheduled to have X-rays on the collarbone on Monday but a determination on when or if the quarterback will return this season has not been made. (The Dallas Morning News)Comment
