EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Randy Moss is expected back on the field this week for the Minnesota Vikings, provided his strained right hamstring doesn't swell.
 

Coach Mike Tice said Monday a reasonable plan for Moss in Sunday's game against Jacksonville is 25 plays, mostly in three-receiver formations.

Since sustaining the injury Oct. 17 at New Orleans, Moss twice made token appearances without catching a pass and did not dress for the last three games.

He's still tied for third in the NFC with eight touchdown receptions for the Vikings (6-4), who stopped a three-game losing streak by beating Detroit 22-19 on Sunday.

Moss, who has been running routes on the side for the past week, looked good in an intense workout Monday morning to test his strength and endurance. Tice and team trainers want to make sure the leg doesn't swell on Tuesday before allowing him to practice. He'll be listed as doubtful, for now.

"Hopefully as the week progresses we'll be able to fix that and turn it into questionable, probable," Tice said. "We'll see."

Pro Bowl center Matt Birk, who has been playing with intense abdominal pain, might have to sit out a game or two next month to let the injury calm. He's expected to play against the Jaguars, though.

Nat Dorsey, who took over at right tackle when Mike Rosenthal was lost for the season with a foot injury, strained his right shoulder and might have to miss this week.

Exactly. He makes the other receivers better, he makes Culpepper better, and he makes the running game better. He is definitely one of those players that make a huge impact on a game.
