EDEN PRAIRIE, MINN. (AP) - The mystery about whether wide receiver Sidney Rice will play for the Minnesota Vikings this season is down to its final days.

Rice had hip surgery in late August and has been practicing with the team for the last two weeks. He must be moved to the active roster by next Wednesday for him to be eligible at all this season.

Coach Brad Childress said Friday that Rice’s soreness is “not as bad as last week” and that the decision on his status will be made after Saturday’s practice. Childress also said that if Rice is not activated for Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers he likely will be placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Rice declined to comment to reporters after Friday’s practice.
