Sidney Rice Injury: Seahawks WR Had Two Offseason Shoulder Surgeries, Accoridng To Report

Everyone has been wondering what Seattle Seahawks wideout Sidney Rice has been doing with himself this offseason, and after speaking with the press recently we all now know. Rice had two offseason shoulder surgeries according to the Seattle Times, but noted that he will be ready for training camp despite having two procedures done.

Here is SB Nation's football genius Ryan Van Bibber talking about Rice:

Rice's shoulder operations resulted from his request that doctors take a look at his left shoulder. Dr. James Andrews discovered a full 360-degree tear in the left shoulder. He tore his right labrum in training camp last season, an injury that put him on the shelf for the first two games of the season, his first since signing a free agent deal with Seattle.

Rice has not been cleared for contact.

Rice's injury history has to be of concern to the Seahawks. The team did not make any major additions at the position this year. With a quarterback competition between Matt Flynn andTarvaris Jackson, and questions about each player, the Seahawks could really be lacking without Rice.

Hopefully he can make a speedy recovery and get back out there and help the 'Hawks.
