07:26 PM ET 05.01 | Minnesota Vikings receiver Greg Childs still isn't putting any timeline on his return from tearing the patellar tendons in both his knees. But Childs showed off his progress on Wednesday, running sprints as part of a rehabilitation workout in plain view of reporters while teammates went through conditioning drills in the Winter Park fieldhouse. "I'm doing a lot of cutting, some jumping, some sprinting," Childs said afterwards. "All the necessary things I need to be doing, I'm doing now." Childs, 23, suffered the injuries when he crashed to the turf untouched on Aug. 4, while diving for a pass inside Blakeslee Stadium. He underwent surgery and was on crutches for some time, beginning a rehabilitation process he said had him running again a couple of months ago. He admitted on Wednesday he's not close to 100% healthy but repeatedly listed off the drills (sprints, cone drills, feet work, catching balls off the JUGS machine) and routes (slants, posts, drags) he's able to complete a little less than nine months after the injury.

Childs relly seams to be determined on making it back. So if Simpson regains his form and the UFA Smith who is 6'6" from FL. and Carter look good to go with CP, Jennings and Wright and Carlson is what we hope he can be the Vikings may have one of the best recieving groups in the NFL. What a change from a year ago!!!
