Didn't then Packers WR Javon Walker have a hip injury too? Heard about hip issues with Rice last month and have, thankfully, avoided him in my drafts.
Don't feel too bad Favre owners, the Vikes have addressed the issue.

They signed Walker. Look for major bump in Berrians value, and that WR who caught the miracle pass, Lewis?, last year. Shiancoe will prolly get an opportunity to be a top 10 or better TE.

I don't. I did that with Anthony Gonzalez last year, then released him. He was still on waivers around Week 6 when it said he might come back. I scooped him up again. He didn't come back.

I'm not doing all of that again.

From the Red Zone:
According to Jeremy Fowler of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, less than two months after hip surgery, Vikings wide receiver Sidney Rice was catching passes Friday during the Vikings' practice session at Winter Park.

Wearing a purple No. 18 jersey and black sweats, Rice slowly jogged across an empty practice field while injured reserve receiver Jaymar Johnson threw him a couple of passes in stride. When we say slow, we mean slow — his lower-body movements were minimal.

But it's progress for a guy who was on crutches last week. Rice ditched the crutches on Tuesday, and he should find out soon when he can return to football activities.

From Rotoworld:
Sidney Rice (PUP, hip) was able to run at half-speed and catch passes on the side of Vikings practice Wednesday.
He was working with Vikings WRs coach George Stewart. It's the first "football activity" Rice has done since undergoing hip surgery in August. "Slowly but surely" is how beat writer Tom Pelissero described Rice's progress. He's still unlikely to play before Week 10 or so, but a late-season return is at least looking possible. Rice has yet to be activated from PUP.

I have four guys on bye this week and had to drop Rice. I hope nobody in my league knows how close he is to returning. Sidney Rice for the playoffs sounds good... provided Favre gets his act together. With Moss double covered, Rice gets the choice WR1 in a WR2 slot. Opponents will have to either play zone or single cover him, both recipes for big production.

Rice returning to practice soon?
What would the time frame be?

Nov 3 Rice has been taken off the physically unable to perform list, allowing his return to practice.
Advice: Coach Brad Childress announced Wednesday the decision regarding Rice, who has been recovering from hip surgery in late August. The Vikings have up to three weeks to evaluate his progress before determining whether to put him on the active 53-man roster. Childress said Rice would run with the scout team in Wednesday's practice. His return has become even more important to the Vikings following the surprise release of Randy Moss this week.

I'm thinking possibly by week 11 he comes back. Would you rather have Rice or Vjax?

VJack has a better QB situation, but doesn't he have to sit out a few games yet?

I ruined my FF season BTW by drafting both Sidney Rice and Vincent Jackson so take my advice with a grain of salt.

Rice is running full speed and making cuts. Grab him soon if you want him.

From Rotoworld:
Sidney Rice (hip) was able to run at full speed and make cuts in his return to Vikings practice Wednesday.
Rice "didn't appear hindered by the injury," according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, while Jeremy Fowler of the St. Paul Pioneer Press confirms that what Rice was able to do "looked encouraging," even if he's still "rusty, as expected." Rice isn't likely to play in Week 9, but could return for Week 10

Report says he "ran extensively before Sunday's game" but he hasn't been tackled yet. I'm guessing Rice is around 1-2 weeks away. Barring setbacks, he should be back in football shape for the playoffs.
