Seattle, WA (SportsNetwork.com) - Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney
Rice suffered a season-ending torn ACL in Monday's 14-9 win over the St. Louis
Rams, the team announced Tuesday.
Rice is tied for the team lead in touchdown receptions (3) and ranks third
among Seattle players in catches (15) and receiving yards (231). The South
Carolina product has only played two full seasons in his seven-year NFL career
due to an assortment of injuries.
The 27-year-old missed the final seven games of the 2011 season, his first
with Seattle, with multiple concussions. Hip surgery limited Rice to just six
games the previous year, while then a member of the Minnesota Vikings.
Seattle is expected to get back wide receiver Percy Harvin in the coming
weeks, though it is unsure if he will play when Seattle hosts the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers in Week 9. Harvin has yet to play this season as he continues his
recovery from hip surgery.
