The Seattle Seahawks were a play away from losing to the St. Louis Rams on Monday Night Football. Though the Seahawks escaped with a 14-9 win, wide receiver Sidney Rice left the game with a knee injury and did not return.
Rice's status is not yet known, but he was announced as doubtful to return just moments after heading to the locker room.
