Adrian Peterson Seeks to Become Best Football Player Ever

Former Oklahoma running back and Vikings star Adrian Peterson lives in Houston. While his neighbors crank the air conditioning on a June morning, Peterson leaves his house at about 8:30 a.m. and drives 45 minutes to meet his trainer at a workout facility featuring a sand pit, a steep hill and a track.

The burning in his lungs is assuaged by a simple and powerful thought: “I doubt any other running backs are doing this,” he said.

Why does he? “I work with the mind-set of being the best ever,” he said. “That, and my approach, set me apart. I have it in my mind that I’m doing things that nobody else is doing. You’re not just saying you’re going to be the best ever, you’re putting in the work to accomplish that.”

Jalen Saunders Returns to Practice After Suffering Seizure

Former Oklahoma standout and New York Jets rookie wide receiver Jalen Saunders returned to full practice Monday, 10 days after suffering a seizure while driving his car.

Saunders was involved in a one-car accident and was hospitalized for two days. He wasn't injured, but he underwent neurological testing. He experienced a "medical event" moments before the accident, according to the police report. The Jets didn't confirm the diagnosis until Monday.

"He had a seizure, and that's the extent of what we know," coach Rex Ryan said. "We let the professionals handle it. When the doctors were confident that he would be cleared, he was -- and that's where he's at now."

Bob Stoops: Blake Bell Taking Snaps at QB is 'Emergency Plan'

Bob Stoops acknowledged Monday that Blake Bell did, in fact, take snaps at quarterback in practice last week. This despite Oklahoma’s insistence that Bell was now a fulltime tight end for the Sooners.

The explanation?

“Because of Cody Thomas’ situation and, as much as anything, too, wanting to redshirt Justice Hansen,” Stoops said. “All of that together plus not having Baker Mayfield’s situation resolved, it never hurts to have an emergency plan.”

Former Sooner WR Kenny Stills Reaggravates Quad Injury

Former Oklahoma wide receiver Kenny Stills aggravated the quadriceps injury [during Saturday's preseason game] that has plagued him throughout training camp and was forced to leave the game in the first half. Stills was also making his preseason debut after the quad, which he first hurt in the spring, kept him out of the first two games and most of training camp.

“Not much to say. It’s the same injury I was dealing with before,” Stills said, via ESPN.com.

Undrafted Free Agent Damien Williams Is Turning Heads

Former Oklahoma and current Miami Dolphins running back Damien Williams rushed for 33 yards and a touchdown on seven carries in the Dolphins' third preseason game.

Williams entered the game as the third back behind Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno. 

An undrafted rookie out of Oklahoma, Williams has a great shot to make the Dolphins' 53-man roster. Williams has rushed 24 times for 55 yards (2.3 YPC) this preseason. (RotoWorld) Bob Stoops dismissed Damien Williams from the team in November 2013 for violating University policy.
