INDIANAPOLIS — Minnesota coach Brad Childress will give Brett Favre as much time as he wants to make up his mind about coming back for the 2010 season.

Childress spoke Friday at the NFL's annual scouting combine.

Right now, Childress said football is not Favre's primary focus. Childress said he spoke with Favre this week and that he was still recovering from the beating he took in the NFC championship game. He's also putting down limestone at his mother-in-law's house.

Still, Childress said Favre has earned the right to take his time to make a decision and the Vikings are prepared to wait.

If Favre doesn't return, Childress is content going with either Sage Rosenfels or Tarvaris Jackson, backups last season.
