Moss Next for MRI?
Why weren't these injuries reported or part of the team's injury report? Quite simply because Moss doesn't tell anyone. Even if injured, Moss rarely goes to the training room for treatment following a game, something Mike Tice claims is "old school football."
Pulling up one step short of have Fred Zamberletti yell to Moss, "You're my boy, Blue!" the coaching and medical staff are wanting to have more of a role in Moss' medical care. VU has been told that, if Moss is clearly still in pain today, the team may require that he get an MRI to make sure there are no severe injuries that he is masking through the lack of complaints.
Those who know Moss know he is a tough player who has never missed a game -- and rarely missed a practice. He may have to be forced to get the medical attention he should get. That decision (or use of force) may come today.
* Daunte Culpepper continued to show limited improvement Tuesday, but is still going to be listed as doubtful for Sunday when the Vikings submit their injury report to the league.
* As reported by VU yesterday, the Vikings did sign WR Robert Baker Tuesday to add depth at the wide receiver corps. To make room for Baker, the team had released safety Ron Israel on Monday.
