Sidney Rice out for remainder of season
Pete Carroll wasn’t sure just how serious the knee injury that Sidney Rice got on Monday night was after the 14-9 victory over the Rams in St. Louis. Now the Seahawks’ fourth-year coach is.
Additional tests on Rice’s knee Tuesday showed that the veteran wide receiver tore the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), an injury that will end his third season with the Seahawks at midseason.
Rice caught 15 passes for 231 yards during the Seahawks’ 7-1 start and has three touchdown catches to share the team lead with Golden Tate and tight end Zach Miller.
With Rice out, it could hasten the return of Percy Harvin, who started the season on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list after having hip surgery on August 1. Harvin returned to practice on a limited basis last week, but has yet to be added to the 53-man roster.
Tate, who had two touchdown catches in Monday night’s game, leads the team with 32 receptions and 439 yards. Doug Baldwin is second in both categories (23 for 372).
