"Albert's always been a guy who works really hard. He's always been really good at what he does," Greenway said. "He's undersized, but he plays with a big heart. He can block well, knows his assignments and runs hard."
Even though the 5-foot-8 Young didn't play in a game last season, he still went to the Pro Bowl. Peterson invited all the running backs with him to Honolulu, and Young has made it a point to learn as much as he can from the reigning NFL rushing champion and Taylor, the do-it-all backup.
"The main thing is you've got to pick certain things each of them has in their games and incorporate it in yours," Young said. "There's a reason why those guys are successful so I wouldn't be doing myself justice if I wasn't trying to take little pieces of their games."
NOTES: QB Sage Rosenfels (ankle), WR Bernard Berrian (hamstring), TE Garrett Mills (shoulder) and TE Jim Kleinsasser did not practice. Their status for Friday night's game against Kansas City is still in question. DE Jared Allen limped off the field with an apparent ankle injury, but there was no word on his condition.
