EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Adrian Peterson continues to make progress toward a possible return this season.The Minnesota Vikings running back ran short sprints in the end zone of the teams indoor practice field on Tuesday, continuing his rehab from the torn right meniscus he suffered in September.Sources had told ESPN last week that Peterson was cleared to begin running. Coach Mike Zimmer said Tuesday was not Petersons first time running on a field during his rehab, but the running backs appearance at practice showed he still is heading in the right direction toward playing again this season.Hes doing good, Zimmer said, Hes probably ahead of schedule, I guess.The typical recovery timetable after a full meniscus repair, which Peterson had on Sept. 22, is thought to be at least three to four months. Sources told ESPN earlier this month that Peterson could be on the early end of that timetable, with a return on Dec. 18 against the Indianapolis Colts or Dec. 24 against the Green Bay Packers appearing to be distinct possibilities.On Tuesday, Zimmer would not discuss a timetable for when Peterson could practice or possibly return to action.Well worry about all that when that happens, Zimmer said. Right now, we have to focus on Dallas and their team.Petersons possible return could provide a boost to the leagues 32nd-ranked running game.He looked good, guard Alex Boone said. It kind of caught me off guard a little bit. We were doing a little walk-through, and he was running around. We look forward to his return.

PETERSBURG, Fla. http://www.wholesalejerseysnfloutlet.com/cheap-los-angeles-rams-jerseys/ . After Mondays hard-fought loss, the wait seemed longer than usual. Getting set to go their separate ways for a short Christmas break, the Raptors coach credited his team for their effort on a seemingly impossible three-game road trip, urging them to build on that success when they get back to work at the end of the week.

Murray beat Sam Querrey 7-6 (5), 6-7 (3), 6-1, 6-3 to clinch Britains opening-round victory against the United States on Sunday at Petco Park. "Im proud of the way Im playing just now, because I had to do a lot of work to get back to where I want to be," Murray said after celebrating with his teammates on the red clay court in a temporary stadium in left field of the downtown home of baseballs San Diego Padres. OTTAWA, Ontario -- Just three or four years ago, the popular narrative enveloped this hockey-mad nation that somehow Canada had stopped producing enough high-level goaltenders. After one look at the three masked men lockering next to each other over the past week in Canadas capital, that notion now seems so silly.The past two Vezina Trophy winners,?Carey Price and Braden Holtby,?and Corey Crawford, owner of two Stanley Cup rings,?form a 1-2-3 punch in goal for Canada that arguably is the cream of the World Cup tournament -- although Team USA certainly can make an argument, too.Its a good luxury to have, Martin Brodeur, the NHLs all-time winningest goalie, said during a phone conversation on Monday. [In the World Cup] in 04, I got hurt at a bad time in the semifinals, and Roberto Luongo came in and stole the game for us to get into the finals. So the depth is such an important thing. Whether its a bad game or an injury, you have guys to step up and do the job. Thats a luxury that were pretty fortunate to have. You look at other teams -- Team USA might be in the same boat as Canada, but apart from that, it gets pretty thin quickly at that position.Whatever perceived or actual concern Canada had in goal a few years ago is now a distant memory.Yeah, whatever the talk used to be about there not being enough goaltenders coming out of Canada, I think these three are doing a pretty good job of erasing that reputation, agreed center Jonathan Toews. You could start any one of those three guys and they would carry us where we want to go.And thats not counting the Canadian goalies who arent here. Martin Jones and Matt Murray?each made deep Stanley Cup runs with the?San Jose Sharks and Pittsburgh Penguins, respectively, last spring. Jake Allen is coming along for the?St. Louis Blues, Pittsburghs?Marc-Andre Fleury was having a sensational 2015-16 season before concussion problems set in, Brian Elliott is always underrated, and Luongo is still kicking around.The point being, its hard to believe that Canadian hockey fans and media were fretting so much about the position just a few years ago.Like anything, you never really know what the reason was for a while there. It could have just been a weird cycle, said Holtby, last seasons Vezina Trophy winner. Its hard to say. But its good that Canadian goaltending is coming up. Carey has probably had a lot to do with that. He inspired a lot of kids, being in Montreal on that big stage. Hopefully, well see it get better and better.What we havent seen so far in the teams preparation for the World Cup is the kind of drama and/or tension that has so often surrounded Canadas goalie situaation in best-on-best tournaments, such as:In Nagano in 1998, when many felt a young Brodeur should have been given the chance to make his Olympic debut in the bronze-medal game once Canadas gold medal hopes were dashed in the semis.dddddddddddd. But Patrick Roy played every game.In Salt Lake City in 2002, when Team Canada head coach Pat Quinn yanked his own?Toronto Maple Leafs?goalie Curtis Joseph after just one game, a bad loss to Sweden, opening the door for Brodeur to take the puck and run with it.In Vancouver in 2010, when head coach Mike Babcock made the bold decision to bench Brodeur for Luongo after a roun-robin loss to the U.S.Yep, its rarely boring when it comes to the Team Canada goalie situation.Whats noticeable so far this time around is that Price, Holtby and Crawford have a camaraderie going, each one pulling for the other. Holtby made it clear from the first day of camp that, despite being the reigning Vezina Trophy winner, he believed that Price, the Olympic holdover, should be the starter.Theyre pretty good guys, Crawford said Monday. Price is hilarious. And Holtby is such a down-to-earth, cool guy. Just relaxed. Its fun to work with them. Its a good chance for me to come here and play in the last game, just hang out and do my thing. Those two guys are easy to be around.Says the humble guy with all the Stanley Cup rings.We certainly havent seen any of the tension that was evident in the past -- so far. But Brodeur deserved credit in 2010 for the way he accepted Babcocks decision with class and tried to avoid making it a bigger story than it already was.Youre trying to make it as smooth as possible for management, Brodeur said Monday. The last thing you need is a huge competition that takes away from what people are trying to do there, which is to win the World Cup. As players you dont want that attention on you. Sometimes its created; I remember when I went to Vancouver, it was all about Luongo because he played in Vancouver [with the Canucks]. I knew it was going to be hard for me. One bad game, and it was easy to make a transition there. It was kind of written in the sky.But its always the case with Team Canada for top goalies. You run with the ball until somebody is there to take you down. Its hard to get the ball, and when you have it you dont want to let it go. I had a few tournaments where Luongo was right beside me, and next thing you know he got the opportunity and ran with the ball. Now Price has it. And theres two other guys now waiting there with him.
