Brett Favre hasn't decided whether he's returning for another season. Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress was in Mississippi on Monday, apparently to try to speed up his star quarterback's decision.

WDAM-TV in Hattiesburg, Miss., reported Monday that both Childress and Favre were seen Monday at a seven-on-seven passing camp for high school players at the University of Southern Mississippi.

When asked about the reason for his visit, Childress responded: "You can fill in the blanks."

The Vikings' coach arrived in Hattiesburg on Sunday and said he did not know how long his stay in Mississippi would last, according to WDAM.

When asked about Favre's meeting with Childress, agent Bus Cook told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter: "I really don't know. Don't know when I will."

Last week, at the ESPY Awards in Los Angeles, Favre said it would be the condition of his surgically repaired ankle and not his desire to play football that would determine whether he returned for another NFL season.

"It starts with the ankle," Favre said in an interview with ESPN's Hannah Storm backstage at the ESPY Awards. "I can walk fine, but you don't walk in football."

Favre said he is still not completely healthy. "I guess at 40 I may never be," he said.

The Vikings are scheduled to begin training camp July 30.
