Jennings played with three starting quarterbacks in seven seasons with the Packers. He’s about to play with his third quarterback in the past four games with the Vikings.

“If somebody would have told me that, I don’t know if I would have come,” Jennings said with a laugh before pausing and adding, “No. A little humor. A little humor.”

Bishop using AP timeline

Peterson’s remarkably quick recovery from surgery to repair the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee last season continues to motivate those who have suffered the same fate since then.

“The first person who I talked to was Adrian about it,” said Vikings linebacker Desmond Bishop, who tore the ACL in his right knee in Sunday’s loss to the Panthers. “I was looking at his whole timeline so that’s who I’m kind of in competition with right now. I believe he got his surgery after the injury six or seven days after. I think mine is going to be eight so I’m a little upset about that.”

Bishop was smiling. He considers this injury less severe than the torn hamstring that knocked him out all last season with the Packers. He’ll have this surgery performed on Tuesday by renowned surgeon James Andrews, who also did Peterson’s surgery.

“Going forward, I’m just going to try and keep at the same pace he had,” Bishop said. “He kind of set the blueprint. That’s where I’m channeling all my focus, to outdo him.”
