Favre Return to Lambeau Delayed
Former Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Brett Favre’s expected return to Lambeau Field could be delayed because of former quarterback Bart Starr’s health problems.

Starr recently suffered two strokes and a heart attack, and Favre has told ESPN that he’s not comfortable making the appearance solo. Plans to induct Favre into the Packers’ Hall of Fame and retire his number next year remain in place.
