"I know it was a bad injury and I know some of those injuries can be career-ending," defensive end Jared Allen said. "So to see him back running, to see him back with a helmet in his hand, to me is awesome. It's inspiring."
"He's been on the verge of what I would say would be a Pro Bowl season, and then devastating injuries have happened," Allen said. "I just want to see him get back, have a full year under his belt. That is one player that I can say without a doubt will help us win a championship."
