Seattle's Sidney Rice headed to injured reserve
Wednesday, November 30, 2011
RENTON, Wash. (AP) -- The Seattle Seahawks will place Sidney Rice on injured reserve after the former Pro Bowl wide receiver suffered a second concussion in just a few weeks.
Coach Pete Carroll announced the decision on Wednesday, a day ahead of Seattle's night game against Philadelphia. Carroll had already ruled Rice out for this week after Rice was injured in last week's game against Washington.
Rice has endured a season of injuries that started with a labrum injury in his shoulder during the preseason that caused him to miss the first two games. Rice suffered his first concussion less than three weeks ago against Baltimore and then was re-injured against the Redskins.
For the season, Rice has 32 catches for 484 yards and two touchdowns.
