During Brad Childress' weekly press conference (which may be broadcast in Times Square at this point), most of the questions were focused on this Randy Moss fella (more on that in a bit).
But in terms of players who are actually still on the Vikings roster, Childress had some good news, telling the media that Sidney Rice would come off the the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, and begin practicing.
The Vikings will have three weeks to evaluate Rice and see if they want to activate him.
Rice underwent surgery on his hip during the offseason after a Pro Bowl year and some questions about his contract (which pays him $550,000 in the last year of his rookie deal).
As for who would fill Randy Moss' void on offense while Rice is evaluated, Childress' response was, "We have Hank Baskett." Oof.
