I cant really recite any specific programs off the top of my head by my advice would be to perform an exercise that takes the factor of weight off your legs at a light to moderate intensity, as means of increasing blood circulation and loosining any tight muscles up, such as swimming or cycling. At the AFL club im currently working at we tend to do 30 minutes recovery sessions on a monday that consist of stretching and mostly light to moderate intensity running with skills in between like hand balls and short kicks just to keep the guys interested. Idealy we would perfer to do a pool session or a cycle to reduce the effect of body weight but sadly we dont have the facilities to make it an option.
Hope that helps,
