Risky to start him against the Bears. My guess is he may play since the Vikings are hurting at WR with Moss gone and Harvin once again having migraines but you can't count on it. You may have to wait and check Sunday morning for the Active player list. Here's the latest:
Tom Pelissero of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities believes that Sidney Rice (hip) will be available for no more than 15-30 snaps when he makes his season debut.
After watching practice closely, Pelissero believes Rice "looks like he's ready to go," but that the contract-year receiver is very much aware of money on the line with unrestricted free agency looming in 2011. "I do expect that Sidney Rice is going to land back on the 53-man roster," says Pelissero, "but to say that it's a sure bet for this Sunday is anything but true."
