Sidney Rice injury: Fantasy value uncertain after missed practice

USA TODAY Sports

Will the Seahawks have their top receiver on Sunday in Toronto? We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice missed practice on Wednesday with a foot injury and his status is uncertain for Sunday in Toronto against the Buffalo Bills. This is the first time all season that Rice has been iffy to play as he is enjoying his healthiest season since 2009.

Though not as productive as his career-year in 2009, Rice has caught 45 passes for 658 yards and 7 touchdowns, all of which are the second-highest totals he's had in six seasons for the Vikings and Seahawks. Rice was feared to have a concussion twice this season after big hits in each of the past two games, but it now appears that his foot is the real culprit.

Fantasy Take: Not a good time for Rice to miss a game since the Bills are susceptible, though improving, on defense. It shouldn't be as big of a blow to Russell Wilson if Rice is unable to go though, as Seattle has adjusted with whatever pieces they typically have on any given day.

Check back on his status throughout the week.
