Seattle, WA, United States (4E Sports) – The Seattle Seahawks have announced that wide receiver Sidney Rice will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL.
Rice suffered the injury in the second quarter of Seattle’s 14-9 win over St. Louis Monday. 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. He was taken to the locker room and at the time of the injury, Seattle said he was doubtful to return.
Rice has been the Seahawks third leading receiver with 231 yards through the first eight weeks of the season, trailing Doug Baldwin (372) and Golden Tate (439).
Luckily for the Seahawks, Percy Harvin is expected to return this week when they host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
