Sidney Rice injury news from the Seattle Seahawks is that Rice has a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the regular season. According to a report from the team on Tuesday (Oct. 29), the injury took place during the second quarter of Monday night’s (Oct. 28) victory against the St. Louis Rams. Losing him hurt the offense in that game and it could be a huge loss moving forward as well.
So far this season, he had 15 catches, for 231 yards and three touchdowns to his credit. He was a good deep threat for quarterback Russell Wilson to throw to, but that weapon is now going to be sidelined as he tries to recover. The huge coincidence here is that Percy Harvin is trying hard to make his debut in Week 9, but now the duo won't be able to take the field again together in 2013.
Fantasy football owners can go ahead and release the wide receiver after hearing this Sidney Rice injury news. If Harvin isn't ready to go, then Doug Baldwin could see an increase in targets when the Seattle Seahawks play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 9. It could also lead to even more running plays from the team, increasing the value that Marshawn Lynch and Russell Wilson have on the ground.
