Moss doesn't play in second half

MINNEAPOLIS -- Randy Moss left Minnesota's game against the New York Giants at halftime Sunday, leaving the All-Pro receiver without a reception for the second straight week.

Moss, bothered by a right hamstring he strained on Oct. 17 at
New Orleans, was introduced in the starting lineup and played a
handful of snaps in the first half.

He was thrown to once, catching the ball on a fade route in the
corner of the end zone -- but he couldn't get his left foot in
bounds and the pass was ruled incomplete. Moss clearly wasn't able
to go full speed, however, whenever he ran downfield.

Moss walked out for the second half wearing a gray T-shirt,
sweat pants and sandals. This was the 103rd consecutive
regular-season appearance for Moss, who has appeared in every game
of his seven-year career. Last week against Tennessee, his streak
of 101 straight games with a catch ended when he played just two
snaps.
