Seahawks Rice Set To Shoulder The Load

After a season derailed by injuries last year, wide receiver Sidney Rice is looking to come back strong in 2012. As one of the Seahawks key free agent acquisitions last season, Sidney Rice was supposed the main target in the wide receiver corps. It didn’t turn out that way.

Seahawks Insider Clare Farnsworth writes at

Things didn’t go as planned last year, when Rice was signed in free agency after playing his first four NFL seasons with the Minnesota Vikings. He damaged the labrum in his right shoulder while battling for a pass in a training camp practice, which forced him to sit out the first two regular-season games and then limited his effectiveness in the nine games he did play (32 receptions for 484 yards and two touchdowns).

Then Rice got two concussions in a three-game span and the team decided to place him on injured reserve for the final five games.

So far, Rice’s rehabilitation is on target, and he should be ready to go when training camp starts next month. He’s added 13 pounds of muscle after successful surgery on both shoulders.
