EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Minnesota Vikings linebacker E.J. Henderson is back on his feet and says he's on track to return to the field for training camp.

Henderson broke his leg against Arizona on Dec. 6.

Henderson spoke to reporters on Tuesday night before receiving the team's annual award for community service. He was also hosting an event at Winter Park for his youth foundation.

Henderson says he started walking without a cane a few weeks ago. He says his recovery is on schedule and that he should be back by August. He has been rehabilitating in the training room at team headquarters nearly every day.
