Seahawks WR Sidney Rice out for season with torn ACL
The Seahawks will have to go the rest of the year without one of their offensive weapons: wide receiver Sidney Rice reportedly has a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season.
It's a good thing the Seahawks are getting Percy Harvin back soon because the team will have one less receiver going forward. Sidney Rice has a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season, the team announced on Tuesday.
Rice was injured in the second quarter of Seattle's 14-9 win over St. Louis on Monday night. On a first-and-goal play from the St. Louis 9-yard line, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson tried to hit Rice in the end zone. Rams cornerback Janoris Jenkins made a play on the ball and afterward, Rice was slow to get up.
Eventually Rice was taken to the locker room and at the time of the injury, Seattle said he was doubtful to return.
Before Rice's injury, Harvin's return was viewed as a big deal in Seattle, now that Rice is done for the season, it's an even bigger deal. Harvin is expected to return this week when the Seahawks host the Buccaneers, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.
