Terry in training for Chelsea one day after back surgery

Terry in training for Chelsea one day after back surgery

England and Chelsea captain John Terry returned to training Friday, only one day after undergoing back surgery.
The central defender jogged at Chelsea's Cobham training ground in London, the club said.
Terry has missed the Blues' last four games, in which Chelsea has conceded six goals.
Team doctor Bryan English declined to say when Terry would play next.
After Thursday's operation in France, Terry was expected to play again this season but a return in January was considered unlikely.
"The instructions from the surgeon were to run the day after surgery. That is great for us and great for John," English said.
"We are not going to do anything with John that is going to cause him problems. I am not in the game of pushing him out there because it is for the benefit of Chelsea _ but I also don't want to hold him back unnecessarily," English added.
The defending champions host Fulham on Saturday and travel to Aston Villa on Tuesday in Premier League games.
Chelsea is four points behind league leader Manchester United.
