Sidney Rice will not play Sunday

Vikings WR Sidney Rice will not be active for Sunday’s game vs. the Bears, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Rice Minnesota had until 3 p.m. today to place Rice on the 53-man active roster from the Physically Unable to Perform list. Since the Vikings didn’t do that, Rice is ineligible to play.

Rice – who underwent hip surgery in late August – has practiced the past two weeks, and he said he really went hard Thursday. But before he would commit to playing, he wanted to see how he felt the two days afterward to see if he’d need another week of recovery. Apparently, he’s made his decision.

Now, according to the Star Tribune, Minnesota will use a roster exemption that allows Rice to continue practicing without counting against the 53-man roster. That exemption lasts until Nov. 24.

I couldn't have been more wrong. They really did need him(Rice). Don't blame Favre. Bears had home grass advantage or the viking players were playing in loafers. Horrible

Look guys. It was a good call by Rice to sit. For several reasons actually. 1. Not completely healed obviously. 2. Why jeapordize getting re-injured? That won't do anything for the upcoming contract. 3. And the vikings don't need him....I mean Favre threw for 466 and he didnt have him.

We are playing the Bears. Always a good defensive team. Probably should have 2 more losses on their record but what do you do? The vikings will hand the ball of to Peterson and let him run wild. And Favre will dink and dunk to Harvin and Shiancoe. Peterson has a good record against the bears and I dont see it changing. He's good for 100+ yds and a td or 2. So I'll wait another weak to start Sid on my fantasy team against the Pack at home. Huge game though to not be healthy for. It sucks.

I can see why they might not want him streaking 50 yards down the field yet, that might be a bit much. But he can't even try to help out a little in the redzone?

Rice's $$$ value has dropped so low this year because of his agents and his antics...Makes you wonder if he will ever recover ? Afterall he only has had 1 good season in his career............

Get a clue. Of course he wants to play. He stands to lose money if he cant prove he is healed.
