Vikings right tackle Phil Loadholt said he started running last week and believes he'll be ready for the team's offseason workout program in April. Loadholt, who spoke at the Vikings' Black History Month celebration on Monday night, said he's not worrying about going into the final year of his contract after missing the last 1 1/2 seasons with injuries. Loadholt is scheduled to count for $7.75 million against the Vikings' salary cap in 2016, but the 30-year-old could be in the team's plans after a tough first season for T.J. Clemmings.

The highlight of the Pro Bowl for the Vikings was the 50-yard touchdown pass Teddy Bridgewater completed to the Jaguars' Allen Robinson at the end of the second quarter. It's tough to put much stock in what amounts to a glorified touch football game, but Bridgewater took a shotgun snap, stepped up into a hole in the pocket between the left guard and tackle and flicked a pass that traveled about 40 yards in the air. For a quarterback who's struggled to connect on downfield throws, the TD provided a hint of progress for Bridgewater. He finished with 164 yards on 8-of-11 passing, connecting on two touchdowns and throwing an interception to Marcus Peters. Harrison Smith had an interception for Team Irvin, which defeated Team Rice 49-27. Adrian Peterson carried five times for four yards, and caught three passes for 20 yards.
