Practice six wrap-up

Fans enjoyed a fun practice this morning.

Adrian Peterson flashed that explosive speed on a few runs, although it was limited contact.

But I was most impressed with a catch by Troy Williamson. On third and six, Tarvaris Jackson rifled a pass toward Williamson, who was closely defended by Cedric Griffin. But Williamson snatched the ball with Griffin all over him for the first down.

Very encouraging play for the offense, both because Jackson made the pass and because Williamson made a tough catch.

In other news, Ben Leber, Brian Robison and Visanthe Shiancoe returned to practice.

After practice, Peterson signed autographs and conducted a press conference.

He said he is all set physically, and he's excited to have the collarbone injury behind him.

Asked about full contact, he said, "Oh, I'm ready for that. This is football."

He said he'd like to be Rookie of the Year.

"Some people say I'm crazy," he said. "But I set my bar high."
