He plays for the Vikes, so who knows? Apparently, Tice isn't any more forthcoming with his own players than he is with us.

Will he or won't he?
When it comes to Randy Moss and Monday night's game at Indianapolis, only Vikings coach Mike Tice knows for sure. And he isn't saying.
Tice said Tuesday he has made his decision, later amending that to, "I know which way I'm leaning," but otherwise declining to elaborate.
The Vikings are considering holding Moss out of Monday night's game to rest the strained right hamstring that has limited him to 11 plays in the past two games.
Moss didn't catch a pass in either of those games, and the Vikings appear to be leaning toward resting him, but Tice said he hasn't told any of his assistant coaches or players of his intentions yet, either.
Tice did say he received a phone call Tuesday from Moss, who reported that the hamstring was feeling better.
Tice indicated that wasn't what he wanted to hear, bolstering the Moss-won't-play theory.
Not that he's going to go public with his decision. Not yet, anyway.
"He hasn't said anything to us," said wide receiver Marcus Robinson, who would start in Moss' place. "We've just got to go out and prepare like he's not going to play."
Robinson sprained his left foot in Sunday's 34-13 loss to the Giants but said again that he'll be good to go Monday.
