Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice finally suited up for practice without limitations for the first time this week, and Liz Mathew reports on Twitter that he'll be playing against the Chiefs this Friday. Rice had surgery on both shoulders in the offseason after missing seven games in 2011.
Fantasy Implications: Rice has never regained the same explosiveness that saw him catch 83 passes for 1,312 yards in 2009, but he is definitely a number one wide receiver when healthy. The fact that he's ready to go with two preseason games left is very encouraging for fantasy owners, even if you should still stay cautious because of his injury history. It will be worth watching how he performs with quarterback Russell Wilson, who will be making his first NFL start on Friday and could win the starting job with a strong performance against Kansas City.
