Is Minnesota Vikings LB E.J. Henderson Fully Recovered From Injury?

When Minnesota Vikings linebacker E.J. Henderson broke his thigh bone in a gruesome collision against the Arizona Cardinals last season, you had to wonder if his career was over. In yesterday's 15-10 preseason loss to the San Francisco 49ers, there is no doubt his football career is far from over. In fact, in his first game back since the injury, he picked up right where it left off as one of the best middle linebackers in the National Football League.

I don't know whether Henderson is fully recovered, but judging from last night's performance, he's pretty close.

Henderson looked quick and agile, cutting through the 49ers offense for seven tackles (one for a loss)—and was one of the few bright spots in an otherwise forgettable performance by the Vikings. If Henderson continues to recover at this rapid pace, the Vikes will start the season with arguably the best linebacking corps in the NFL.
