So, this thing happened recently with Randy Moss and the Vikings where they're no longer BFF's (for those living under a rock, he got waived and then maybe not waived and then definitely waived and now there's plenty of drama between the Vikings and head coach Brad Childress).
How about some positive wide receiver news coming out of Minny instead then? Because it turns out that Sidney Rice, who last we heard was just off crutches a few week ago, could return to practice this week.
Via Chip Scoggins of the Star-Tribune, Chilly says "there's a chance" that Rice could be back this week.
So, um, YAY!!!!.
Or something -- even if Rice is back to practice this week, he certainly won't be 100 percent for quite some time, if ever, when it comes to actual gameplay.
And even if he's back on the field this week for practice, he probably won't be able to actually play in a game for several weeks. Which won't do a whole lot to take the heat of of Childress for dumping his only talented deep threat, or provide him with an excuse outside of "the caterer ate my homework" for why he waived Moss.
