Moss officially doubtful for Detroit

Receiver remains on track for Jacksonville next week

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Randy Moss is doubtful for Minnesota's game against Detroit this Sunday.

Moss has missed the last two games, and gone without a reception in the last four, because of a strained right hamstring. The All-Pro receiver looked good in a 20-minute workout Wednesday morning, Vikings coach Mike Tice said, and remains on track to return for the Nov. 28 game against Jacksonville.

"I think he's doing a good job of rehabbing," Tice said. "I think the training staff has done an excellent job of getting him back this quickly. We're right on it."


When pressed, Tice stopped short of saying Moss wouldn't play at all against the Lions.

"You can read into that any way you want," Tice said. "Maybe they'll get ready to play against him, and maybe they won't."

Raonall Smith, will miss his third consecutive game with lingering effects from a concussion.
