Will Sidney Rice return in 2010?
It appears as if the long wait for wide receiver Sidney Rice to return to the field may end up lasting even longer.
Judd Zulgad and Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune are under the impression that Rice will not play at all this season in an effort to prevent further injury. At 3-6, the Vikings’ season appears to be over, so the logic makes sense.
Keep in mind that Rice will be a free agent at the conclusion of this season, so part of the reason he may decide to not play this year could be that he doesn’t want to put some bad tape on his resume that could damage his overall value.
Fantasy owners are advised to sit tight until the end of the week to see what Rice’s status will be for Week 11 when the Vikings host the Green Bay Packers. If the wide receiver doesn’t play, that’s yet another sign he’s probably done of for the year.
