  • Sidney Rice Likely Out Until Midseason

    Wide receiver Sidney Rice was at the Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colo., on Monday to have his injured hip examined and it appears likely he will undergo surgery, according to people with knowledge of the situation.

    OK, he hasn't had the surgery yet, but Minnesota newspapers calling it likely makes me believe it's pretty much a given.

    This is not good news for Favre or the Vikings who are already hurting with Harvin's migraines.

    There are some interesting sidenotes to this story as well...

    -Rice could have had the surgery months ago but waited until now, even though 2-3 specialists recommended the surgery
    -Rice has been looking for a raise from his rookie contract (his agent is Drew Rosenhaus)
    -Favre comes back and now his receivers are dropping like flies
    -This might lead to the return of the Brett Favre - Javon Walker connection
    -Fantasy football players are moving Harvin/Berrian up their boards....

    Update: Rice has surgery

    Isn't Marko Mitchell on your TC roster??? And didn't the Vikes just sign Jevon Walker??

      There were some rumors (quite ones, for some reason) that were pegging Rice as a holdout situation even though it wasn't a typical holdout. I didn't hear any of the stuff about the surgical recommendations being months old - that's pretty f'd up. It really looks like that was the case now.


      Berrian being 100% healthy could be big again this year. Hopefully Harvin can get through his migraine issues.

      (you've got Harvin instead of Rice in the notes at the end, umphrey)

        My question is why didn't he get the surgery in January? I heard this injury happened vs the Saints. Marshall got a similiar surgery in the off-season(if I'm correct) and he's 100% good to go now. I have no idea why he didn't just get it out of the way.


        This could be a wasted season for him, but it would still be a mistake for Minny not to re-sign him.

          It makes me so happy that I chose to keep Steve Smith over him in my keeper league...

          Anyways, Sidney Rice had a hell of a season last year and this will definitely hurt the Vikings. I was hoping to see how he did this season and if he regressed or continued to build on what he did last year. I love the way he tracks the ball in the air, its a thing of beauty.

            The way the situation unfolded reminded me of Anthony Gonzalez last year. It just didn't pass the smell test. When they started talking to Javon Walker that told me everything I needed to know.

              You have Harvin listed a bunch of times in your side notes......

              Also, I've read that this could be in part his way of holding out as he's displeased with his contract.

                  Breaking, Favre has now retired.

                  T.O. should ask for a trade.

                    Berrian is going to have to step up now. As long as he can run, Favre will find him. Losing Rice sucks, not very many people are as good at bringing down a jump ball.. Get better soon, Mini-Fitz.

                      Yeah, I've thought this as well. He sure as hell deserves a lot more than 550000 this year. I was hoping that we'd extend his contract this offseason, but i never happened. This makes me wonder if we will slap him with the franchise tag next season.

                        That's a rough stretch of games to not have your top WR.

                            If you were relying on Sidney Rice as a top fantasy contributor I think your team had flaws to begin with.... ;)

                              That's tough regardless. 6 likely playoff teams and an improving Lions team. They play some tough defenses that can stop the run and get after the passer.

                              Also, Rice has surgery
