Minnesota Vikings receiver Greg Childs is running as part of rehab from torn patellar tendons

Wide receiver Greg Childs has been running lately as part of his continued rehab from two torn patellar tendons.

Childs tweeted on Wednesday a picture on him running at the team’s practice facility.

During last year’s training camp on Aug. 4, he crashed to the turf untouched while diving for a pass, suffering an injury to both knees. Recovery from a single torn patellar tendon can take six months to a year, but recovering from two torn patellar tendons at the same time is a significant challenge to overcome. Because of the severity of having the injury to in both knees, missing this upcoming season is not out of the question.

There is still no timetable for his return at the moment, but this latest update is very encouraging for Vikings fans.
