The Vikings have been without Sidney Rice the entire season as he has nursed and nursed and nursed himself back from injury. This weekend, Rice will make his 2010 Viking debut. The question is whether or not Rice is healthy. According to reports, Brad Childress has told Rice that he will play this Sunday or be put on IR. Rice is in a contract year and is looking to try and stay healthy to capitalize in the off-season market.
“I don’t think I can go the whole game but I’m going to play as much as I can,” said Rice
Doesn’t sound as though Rice is all that certain about his hip recovery.
It’s likely that while Rice is on the field however, that Brett Favre will try and feed him the ball. Rusty or not. That should serve the Packers well as Rice is not the threat he was last year and the first game back on a team in complete disarray won’t help either. Rice playing could mean another pick for the Packers.
