Sidney Rice Status Probable, Expected To Start On Sunday

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice is "Probable" with a foot injury and is expected to start against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

Rice landed on the team's Thursday injury report with a foot injury, but participated fully on Friday and is good-to-go on Sunday. The team characterized his absence on Thursday more as the team giving him a veteran's day off than a concern about his availability for this week's game.

Signed to a five-year, $41 million contract that included $18.5 million in guaranteed money in August, Rice missed the first two weeks of the 2011 season with a shoulder injury that reports indicated will require surgery at some point. Since his return to the lineup, Rice has been the preferred target of Seahawks quarterbacks -- including his former teammate Tarvaris Jackson, who is expected to start as well on Sunday -- catching 24 passes for 366 yards and a touchdown.
