The Vikings transferred Sidney Rice from the active/physically unable to perform list Tuesday to the inactive/PUP, meaing the Pro Bowl wide receiver will miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season and possibly more after having surgery on his hip last week in Vail, Colo.

The move did not come as a surprise as Rice is expected to be out for the first half of the season. The difference in how the designations work is that by being on the active/PUP Rice counted against the 80-man roster and could have been activated at any time. Being on the reserve/PUP means Rice has to sit out the first six weeks.
