    CHICAGO - Injured Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose has started running, although coach Tom Thibodeau says hes nowhere near ready to practice. Jace Sternberger Super Bowl Jersey . The former MVP point guard tore the meniscus in his right knee at Portland in November and was ruled out for the remainder of the season by the Bulls. He sat out last year while recovering from surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Thibodeau says Rose is "nowhere close to practising," but he is able to run and perform lateral slides. The coach also repeated several times on Wednesday that Rose will miss the rest of the season. Aaron Rodgers Super Bowl Jersey . The $145.7-million Tim Hortons Field was slated to open this month, a year before it was to host all 32 mens and womens soccer competitions. The delay has forced the Hamilton Tiger-Cats football team to use a smaller facility for the first two home games of the season. Dave Robinson Super Bowl Jersey . - Dominika Cibulkova erased three match points in the second set Wednesday and beat Agnieszka Radwanska 3-6, 7-6 (5), 6-3 in the quarterfinals of the Sony Open.KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Alex Smith doesnt care how the Kansas City Chiefs score touchdowns.It could be on running plays with Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis. It could be short passes to tight ends Travis Kelce or Anthony Fasano. As long as they are putting up touchdowns, and the Chiefs are piling up wins, the veteran quarterback will be happy.Nope, it doesnt bother Smith at all that no wide receiver has a TD catch this season.The most important thing is that were scoring, Smith said after a 24-10 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday. I think that speaks to the guys we have — we dont have guys looking at their numbers and fantasy numbers every week.Besides, the Chiefs (5-3) have won three straight and five of six. Charles and Davis have become a potent one-two punch, and their stingy defence shut down the Jets (1-8) in a game that was never really in doubt after the Chiefs took a 14-0 lead by the end of the first quarter.So if the biggest quibble in Kansas City right now is the inability of wide receivers Dwayne Bowe and A.J. Jenkins to get into the end zone, so be it.Im proud of them for starting with two losses and then coming back, putting some things together, getting some wins together, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said.Meanwhile, the Jets slide continued with another lacklustre performance.Michael Vick, starting in place of the injured Geno Smith, threw for 196 yards and a touchdown, missing one series in the fourth quarter after taking a blow to the head. He played well enough that embattled coach Rex Ryan plans to stick with him next week against Pittsburgh, but not well enough that the Jets could avoid their eighth consecutive defeat.I know I can still start, said Vick, who went through the NFLs concussion protocol before he was cleared to finish the game. Ive played in this league a long time and I believe in what I can do. ... Ill do everything in my power to get this turned around.The Jets hadnt lost eight straight games since 1996, when they went 1-15 in ttheir final year under Rich Kotite. Bryan Bulaga Super Bowl Jersey. The franchise has never lost nine in a row, an embarrassment the Jets will try to avoid Sunday against the Steelers.This team, I think, you misjudge the character if you think losses are the only thing that identify this team. Thats not the case, Ryan said, when asked about the seemingly endless string of losses. This team is made up off character and these are mighty men. I hope like hell we dont have to endure too many more but we will, if thats the case.HOUSTON, WE HAVE A PROBLEM: Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston, who had an NFL-leading 10 sacks entering the game, had two more on Sunday. He also sacked Vick 4 1/2 times last year, when the Chiefs played the Eagles. Its a group effort, Houston said. Im receiving all the credit, but I cant do it without everybody else.SPEAKING OF SACKS: The Jets had 24 sacks coming into the game, tied with the Chiefs for fourth-most in the NFL. Jason Babin had their only sack Sunday, and it didnt happen until there was about 2 minutes left. Yeah, that was one I was just going to keep the clock rolling rather than throwing the ball away there, Smith said.CHIEFS CRY PERCY: Jets wide receiver Percy Harvin was the lone bright spot, catching 11 passes for 129 yards in his second game since getting traded from Seattle. Overall, execution of the offence was pretty good, he said, other than we couldnt punch the ball in.BOWE PLATEAU: Bowe may not have a TD catch this season, but he still managed to reach another milestone. With six catches for 55 yards, he surpassed 500 catches in his career. Tony Gonzalez holds the franchise record with 916.GOAL-LINE GATE: The Chiefs have been impenetrable at the goal line this season, the only team in the NFL that has not allowed a rushing touchdown. The Jets had a couple of chances from the 3, throwing a TD pass on one of them and an incompletion on fourth down on another.___AP NFL website: and ' ' '
