Dr. James Andrews Talks About QB Brett Favre

Dr. James Andrews is legendary for his past success repairing damaged athletes. He preformed the surgery on QB Brett Favre's injured shoulder.  But I can't ever recall Andrews talking about an NFL rumor before, although it's one well known to nearly everyone by this point:

"I did his shoulder (arthroscopic) a few weeks ago. I visited him in Hattiesburg two weeks ago. He wants to play and he wants to play for the Minnesota Vikings."

But I don't want to take away from the main reason why Andrews was out-and-about, giving lectures and talking to media, take it easy on young athletes:

His message: Too many kids are being asked to do too much, too soon, resulting in career-threatening, major surgery-requiring injuries. The poster child for what Andrews calls "overuse" injuries probably won't surprise you any more than it did me: youth baseball.
