Vikes Rice: contract not reason if he doesn't return

Minneapolis Star-Tribune - [Full Article]

Sidney Rice took umbrage Wednesday to a report he might be hesitant to return this season from hip surgery because of his contract situation, calling it "a bunch of bull" on his blog.

But the Pro Bowl receiver made no assurances he would be activated to the Vikings' 53-man roster by next Wednesday's deadline and revealed for the first time since he underwent surgery in late August that it was a "very serious" procedure. Rice also said he did not return from the physically unable to perform (PUP) list for last Sunday's game at Chicago because he was "feeling significant discomfort Friday and Saturday."
