Well, I wouldn't exactly call that "good news."
The local media (Twin Cities) are still projecting 2-3 weeks.
He may see some time in week 12, but week 13 is the target date.
Hammy injuries (tear) kill speed. I wouldn't play him until he shows he can be more than a decoy.
This being said, Moss playing at less than full speed is still a great option with his skill and CPepps confidence in him.
Still, considering the hammy injury, I wouldn't play him until he shows me he's at least healthy enough to be more than a decoy out there.
Hopefully we'll get a look week 12, and he'll be ready to rock week 13.

I need him back ASAP. Can't believe I'm still in a playoff hunt w/o him. I've gone 0-3-1 since he got hurt after starting 5-0-1.

Wide receiver Randy Moss, who has essentially missed four games since injuring his hamstring October 17 against the Saints, ran at full speed during Friday's practice, and Vikings' offensive coordinator Scott Linehan told the team's flagship radio station KFAN-AM that Moss has not been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Our View
Moss participated in both a 36-play walk-through practice and a 20-minute simulated game on Thursday, and word is he looked great in Friday's session as well. It sounds as if Moss' availability will be a game-time decision—more work, certainly, but a potential bonus for those who thought they'd be without the game's premier receiver for another week.


I will not start Randy Moss. I must not start Randy Moss....
Praise Ricky!

well it looks like next week for moss. I doubt he will play this week (he is listed as doubtful), but running at full speed is a good sign.

I just hope he doesn't try to become a hero and come back too early.

Ignore the freaking injury report.

Listen to, and observe what is taking place in practice.

This does not sound like a player who is targeting a return in two or three weeks. If this report is accurate, and Moss is running at full speed...something fishy is brewing again in Vikingland. There is no way they would let Moss risk testing that hammy at full speed if they were targeting his return for Jacksonville or beyond.

This is Mike Tice we are talking about. A master of deception (well not really although he tries) to other teams and the fantasy world. Is it just me or does Tice remind you of a used car salesman. Lies Lies Lies.

Can I interest you in a Honda Civic?


Sry, that just made me laugh. I would jump for joy if Moss came back next week. Quick! Someone go spy on a practice...

Wouldn't risk playing with a bad Hammy?


Hahahahahahha! Do you even watch football? Tice the moron played him 2 weeks with the bad hammy. No one said he re-hurt it, but it's odd the weeks piled up and they shut him down. If being a decoy for 2 weeks didn't hurt him, why shut him down? Obviously Tice messed up yet again.
