Rice Out; Berrian In; No Word on T-Jack


Sidney Rice will not play in tomorrow’s big exhibition game with Pittsburgh after missing four straight days of practice with a stomach virus.  Bernard Berrian, who missed the Baltimore game with a bad toe, is expected to get some action despite being limited in practice all week himself.  Garrett Mills and Brian Robison remain on the shelf, while Drew Radovich, who suffered a shoulder injury a couple weeks ago against Seattle, is listed as questionable.

Meanwhile…there is no definitive word on whether Tarvaris Jackson will suit up and play against the Steelers, though it’s assumed he will be held out of the game to rest his sprained MCL.  Gus Frerotte would get the start and likely play into the third quarter.  There will surely be some scratches right before game time like always.
