The decision is in.
After declining to talk with the Minnesota media Friday, Sidney Rice told ESPN’s Ed Werder that he’s going to play. (Rice has been taking media tips from Brett Favre.)
“I’m going to play,” Rice said. “I don’t think I can go the whole game but I’m going to play as much as I can.”
Vikings coach Brad Childress said that the team would place Rice on injured reserve if he didn’t play Sunday. That likely forced Rice’s hand and the receiver isn’t ready to call it quits on the 2010 season.
