Vikings WR Randy Moss will miss a game for the first time in his NFL career, sitting out tomorrow night against the Colts with a strained right hamstring.

If Moss travels with the team to Indianapolis, he will sit upstairs in the coaches' booth, Vikings Coach Mike Tice said.

Moss was downgraded to doubtful on the injury report; his hamstring improved this week, but he has not practiced. He was hurt shortly before halftime of the Vikings' game at New Orleans on Oct. 17, and he has played just 11 snaps over the last 10 quarters -- with zero catches.

He has 26 receptions for 394 yards and eight touchdowns this season for the Vikings (5-2). A seven-year veteran, Moss has played in every game -- preseason, regular season and playoffs -- for the Vikings since they drafted him in 1998.

* SCHAUB ARRESTED: Falcons backup QB Matt Schaub was arrested yesterday and charged with assault and battery. Charlottesville police Col. T.J. Longo, reading from a statement, said a 19-year-old man claimed that former the Virginia star Schaub and two other men fought with him outside a restaurant around 1 a.m. Longo added that Schaub surrendered "peacefully" and was released on his recognizance after appearing before a magistrate judge.
