Favre_200 Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre will practice with the team Wednesday and speak at a press conference afterward, according to the Vikings' website.

Coach Brad Childress is also expected to address the media after practice, which is to begin at 9:40 PDT and is expected to last around two hours.

After contemplating retirement once again this off-season and missing much of training camp, Favre flew to Minnesota on Tuesday aboard a private jet, along with three Vikings teammates dispatched to Hattiesburg, Miss., to plead for his return.
