Brad Childress, Vikings head coach, confirms Rice will have surgery to repair his injured hip. Early indications are he will miss most if not all of the season. Childress did not rule out the possibility of putting him on the IR. This does not bode well for the Vikings and Brett Favre. It becomes more important than ever to figure out Harvin’s headaches and get him back to 100%. Bernard Berrian’s value gets a solid boost from this news.
