I also expect an objective report on his foot injury from training camp before the real drafts begin.
Speaking of which, the following are exerpts clipped from the Star Tribune:
Seemingly impenetrable during his first six NFL seasons, the Vikings receiver spent three idle months this winter hoping the plantar fasciitis in his left foot would heal. Disappointed with the results, Moss forcibly exorcised the injury demons Friday and served notice he will now deal with them on his terms. "I don't care if I'm 85 percent, if I'm 100 percent, 50 percent or whatever percentage I am," Moss said as the Vikings' three-day minicamp opened at Winter Park. "I'm still going to play.
"It doesn't matter who we play. The Dallas Cowboys? Hell, I'm playing. There is no question mark about it. People are asking, 'Is he already on the injury list for Week 1?' Hell no. I'm coming to play. And that's it." With those demons dispatched, the most critical topic Friday was how Moss' foot would react to its most rigorous football activity since the end of last season. Moss sat out part of the Vikings' less active three-day development camp this week at Tice's behest, but he participated in all individual and team drills Friday.
Wearing custom-made orthotics in both shoes, Moss did not run at top speed but managed to hide outward signs of the condition.
"Even though he's a little injured," said quarterback Daunte Culpepper, "he's a good enough athlete to make it look like he's not really that hurt. He's still smooth as ever. He might not have his fastest step right now because of the foot injury, but . . . I'm pretty sure he'll be ready when we go to training camp."
As he put it Friday: "I sat my fat butt on the couch and picked up weight." Moss, in fact, gained 15 pounds of muscle while adhering to doctors' orders. He said he plans to play this season between 215 and 220 pounds after being listed at 200 pounds last season.
