Seattle Seahawks receiver Sidney Rice is expected to practice on Friday after missing the last two days because of a sore knee. We break down the fantasy implications.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice is expected to return to practice on Friday, according to coach Pete Carroll, who made the comment on 97.3 KIRO FM (via The Seattle Times). Rice missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday because of a sore knee. The Seahawks face the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners should wait-and-see for the injury report before making a call on Rice, but not much should be expected given his absences from practice this week and Seattle's offense. If healthy, Rice in most leagues is a reach for a No. 3 wide receiver or a flex play against the Cowboys.
