Derrick Rose injury: Bulls star seen running sprints at practice facility

Dennis Wierzbicki-US PRESSWIRE

Derrick Rose was spotted running sprints today at the Chicago Bulls practice facility.

Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose was seen running sprints today at the team's practice facility as he continues to recover from a torn ACL, according to Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald.

Rose is not expected to return from injury until after the All Star Break, and it is unclear whether this report will have any implications on that timetable.

This report, however, should resonate with hopeful Bulls' fans as it brings to mind similarities between Rose and Adrian Peterson of the NFL's Minnesota Vikings. Peterson, who also suffered a torn ACL, was reported to be ahead of schedule and running hill sprints as part of his rehabilitation process. He returned from his injury at full strength and now leads the NFL in rushing by more than 300 yards.

The Chicago Bulls have managed to stay afloat without Rose this season as they presently sit at 8-7 in the standings. Luol Deng has stepped up in Rose's absence to lead the team with 18.1 points per game.
