Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice has ditched the red no-contact jersey and returned to practice.
The Seattle Times reports that Rice has progressed with his recovery from offseason shoulder surgeries and was going full speed at Tuesday's practice. Rice will still be held out of Saturday's game against the Denver Broncos, but it's possible that Rice could be ready for the beginning of the season.
The 6-foot-4, 202 pound receiver wasn't the only Seahawk to return to practice. Wide receivers Doug Baldwin and Ricardo Lockette each returned from hamstring injuries, and linebacker Barrett Ruud was back from dealing with a sore knee.
Some players missing practice included tight end Zach Miller, who suffered a concussion on Saturday. Also out were defensive end Cordarro Law (ankle sprain), fullback Michael Robinson (undisclosed), safety Jeron Johnson (undisclosed) and defensive end Pierre Allen.
