Sidney Rice Injury: Seahawks' WR expected to play Sunday vs. Bills

Sidney Rice missed practice again on Thursday, but he is still expected to play Sunday against the Bills.

US PRESSWIRE

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice missed practice for the second straight day on Thursday, but Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he expects Rice to play on Sunday.

Rice, who has missed practice with a foot bruise, did not wear a walking boot on Thursday. He leads the Seahawks with 45 receptions and 658 receiving yards. His ability to play on Sunday could go a long way in Seattle's quest to win its third road game of the season.

While Rice has had injury issues throughout his career, including missing seven games last season, he's played in all 13 of Seattle's games this season. This is the second straight week he has appeared on the injury report. He was limited in practice two days last week due to a head injury suffered against Chicago.

Even if he is able to play against Buffalo, there is a chance Rice will be less than 100 percent. That may lead to a heavier dose of Marshawn Lynch. The Bills are 28th in the NFL in stopping the run, allowing 134.5 rushing yards per game.
