EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is moving forward in the recovery from surgery on his right knee.Peterson was seen running some short sprints in the teams indoor facility on Tuesday, while the athletic training staff supervised and his teammates went through practice on the field. With five games remaining in the regular season, theres no timetable for Petersons return, but the four-time All-Pro pick could be ready sometime in December.Coach Mike Zimmer has consistently refused to entertain any speculation about whether the Vikings might have the franchises all-time leading rusher in the backfield again this year, but when pressed on the topic by reporters he acknowledged that Peterson was probably ahead of schedule in his rehabilitation. Zimmer said the running session, which took place during the portion of practice that was open to the media, was not the first for Peterson.He looked good to me, cornerback Captain Munnerlyn said. Im just amazed at the things that he can do. Other people with that injury, it might take them four to six months, but this guy hes ready to roll. I think hell be back, and hes definitely going to help this team.Peterson previously beat expectations to recover from surgery to repair a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee and joined the Vikings for the 2012 season opener. He went on to rush for 2,097 yards that year and win the NFL MVP award.The Vikings (6-5) are last in the NFL in rushing with 71.1 yards per game and 2.8 yards per attempt, with particular trouble in short-yardage situations that haunted them in a few of their losses. Even behind an injury-ravaged offensive line that has struggled to open holes all season, adding Peterson to the anemic attack wouldnt hurt. His presence, at least, would be a morale boost for a team desperately trying to stop a slide after a 5-0 start.Well worry about all that when that happens, Zimmer said. Right now, we have to focus on Dallas.The Vikings host the league-leading Cowboys (10-1) on Thursday.Peterson rushed for a paltry 50 yards on 31 carries in two games before tearing his meniscus against Green Bay on Sept. 18 and had surgery four days later. If he were to return for the game against Indianapolis on Dec. 18, that would be a little less than three months from the operation. The rematch with the Packers on the road is on Dec. 24, the five-year anniversary of the ACL and MCL injury to his left knee.Petersons teammates were predictably excited, speaking with more certainty than hope.He looked good, and it kind of caught me off guard, left guard Alex Boone said. We were doing a little walkthrough, and he was running around. We look forward to his return.Munnerlyn and safety Harrison Smith, both dealing with ankle injuries, returned to practice on a limited basis on Tuesday. So did linebacker Chad Greenway after the birth of his daughter. Linebacker Eric Kendricks (hip), wide receiver Stefon Diggs (knee), quarterback Sam Bradford (ankle) and defensive end Everson Griffen (shoulder) were limited participants but should also be good to go for Thursday. Center Joe Berger (concussion) and punt returner Marcus Sherels (ribs) are the two key players likely to miss the game.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys .

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Having a .500 record midway through the season might not seem like a big deal to most teams, but its a major step forward for the Tennessee Titans.The Titans (4-4) already have exceeded their win total from each of the las two seasons after rolling to a 36-22 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night. The Titans finished 3-13 last year and 2-14 in 2014.I think it shows that this teams going in the right direction, Titan coach Mike Mularkey said Friday. Were doing some good things. Last nights probably the first time I can honestly say we had all three phases play well, well enough to win. The results showed it.Mularkey said running back DeMarco Murray underwent an MRI on his toe Friday but added that I dont think its too serious. Murray appeared to hurt the toe late in the second quarter but returned in the second half and ended up with 123 yards.Murray and quarterback Marcus Mariota led a Titans offense that scored on six straight possessions against Jacksonville. On defense, the Titans held Jacksonville in check before allowing two touchdowns in the last 3 + minutes after the game was decided.I think were trying to show people were a different team this year, wide receiver Rishard Matthew said. Were definitely trying to win the division.First they need to play better within the division. The game Thursday is the Titans first AFC South victory after they already had lost at Houston and at home against Indianapolis.But theyre only a half-game behind AFC South leader Houston (4-3). That represents major progress for a franchise that hasnt reached the playoffs since 2008.Tennessees record could be even better if it hadnt let a couple more potential wins slip away.The Titans blew a 10-0 halftime lead in a season-opening 25-16 home loss to Minnesota. They fell 34-26 to Indianapolis at home on Sunday by allowing a go-ahead touchdowwn with less than two minutes remaining.ddddddddddddWeve had chances to win all the games weve been in, Mularkey said. The losses have come down to the final minutes of the fourth quarter. Weve had chances. Its things weve done that have prevented us from getting over the hump to win those games. Yeah, our record could be better, but you could say that about a lot of teams in this league.Tennessee is benefiting from its offseason efforts to upgrade the rushing attack by acquiring Murray and drafting offensive tackle Jack Conklin in the first round and Heisman Trophy-winning running back Derrick Henry in the second round.The Titans average 152.3 yards rushing per game to rank third in the NFL, behind only Dallas and Buffalo. DeMarco Murray has rushed for 756 yards -- already exceeding his 215 total of 633 with Philadelphia.Mularkey believes that ground attack can be even more productive.When you watch the tape, theres a lot of yards still, to me, that were leaving out there, Mularkey said.Five of the Titans last eight games are on the road -- starting with a Nov. 6 trip to San Diego -- but that might not be such a bad thing. Tennessee is 2-1 on the road and only 2/3 at home this season.Mularkey concedes that we really havent accomplished anything just yet with the season halfway over, but he likes his teams approach. After losing three of their first four games, the Titans have won three of their last four.Im really proud of this football team, Mularkey said. I really enjoy being around this team. They care about each other. I care about them. Its important to them. They care about having each others backs. I think its really important to them, and it shows up on Sundays.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jersyes Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
