Sidney Rice Lands On Injured Reserve For Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks have shut down wide receiver Sidney Rice for the season. The team announced today that Rice has been placed on the injured reserve list, according to Danny O'Neil at the Seattle Times. Rice suffered a concussion in a week 12 loss to the Redskins, his third concussion in the last 12 months. 

Rice's injury history casts a long shadow over his NFL future. Three concussions is a very serious matter. He suffered a mild concussion in week 10. Rice finishes his season with 34 receptions for 484 yards and two touchdowns in nine games.

Seattle signed Rice as a free agent during the offseason to a five-year, $41 million contract with $18.5 million in guaranteed money. A number of other suitors were scared off by Rice's injury history - he played just six games in 2010 because of a hip injury - and contract demands.

Sidney Rice Injury: Seahawks WR Done For The Day

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice headed to the locker room with about eight minutes to go in the third quarter of a game against the Washington Redskins. Rice hit his head on the turf earlier in the third quarter. He had to be helped off the field before the Seahawks sent him into the locker room. The Seahawks just announced that Rice will not return to the game.

As to the extent of Rice’s injury, details remain sketchy. Rice left the field in the first quarter with an injury, but soon returned.

Seattle suffered another key injury in the game, losing linebacker David Hawthorne to a knee injury. He was seen on the trainer’s table getting treatment. His return is being called questionable at this point.

Rice leaves the game having not caught a single pass. He did run the ball once for a total of three yards. Hawthorne is Seattle’s top linebacker and a big part of their defense.
