MIAMI (AP) -- Chad Pennington has decided to attempt a comeback from his fourth shoulder surgery after lasting only two plays with the Miami Dolphins this season.
Pennington, 34, said Tuesday he's not ready to retire and hopes to play in 2011, although many obstacles to a full recovery remain.
The Palm Beach Post first reported Pennington's decision to attempt another comeback. He has twice been chosen the NFL comeback player of the year, each time after returning from surgery on his throwing shoulder.
In December, as Pennington prepared for surgery, he said it was 50-50 whether he would retire. After weighing his options, he decided his shoulder might be up to a 12th NFL season.
