Favre wouldn't let son play football


 HATTIESBURG, MS (CNN/WXOW) - NFL great Brett Favre has previously voiced concerns about letting his son play football.  Now, he's doing it again.

During an interview with Mississippi TV station WDAM, Favre eluded to the danger of concussions in the sport. "Its a violent sport. And for two reasons I don't know if I would let him play-the pressures to live up to what your dad had done, but more importantly the damage that is done by play."

Favre has endorsed the pharmaceutical company Prevacus, which is working on a nasal spray treatment for concussions.
