Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice is fine after the big hit he took from Arizona Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson in the Seahawks big 58-0 win on Sunday. Johnson received a penalty for unnecessary roughness on the play, but Rice admitted that it was a clean hit. Rice left the game after the hit, but at that point it was 51-0, so there was no reason for him to stay in the game.
This is the second straight week in which Rice has been at the receiving end of a brutal hit. Rice also took a big hit as he caught the winning touchdown pass against the Bears in Week 13.
Fantasy Impact: Rice is fine, so his fantasy status should remain unchanged. He only had two receptions for 35 yards against the Cardinals, but has been putting up strong numbers in the second half of the season.
Rice has a chance to put up good numbers against the Buffalo Bills next week, consider him a safe start.
