Rice's status for Sunday's Week 15 contest against the Buffalo Bills is still uncertain, and Doug Baldwin or Charly Martin would take his place if he can't go. Also missing from the practice session were defensive end Red Bryant (foot), safety Kam Chancellor (groin), and cornerback Marcus Trufant (hamstring).
Running back Marshawn Lynch has dealt with a nagging back injury virtually all season and was limited in practice. All signs are that the NFL's second-leading rusher will continue to play through the injury. On the season, he's displayed all of the toughness his teammates have come to expect from "Beast Mode," as he's put up an impressive 1266 yards on 261 carries and added nine touchdowns.
Cornerback Walter Thurmond (hamstring) was the only other player listed on the injury report, and was also limited in practice.
