NFL Injury Report: Seahawks WR Sidney Rice Takes Shot, But Seems OK

The Seattle Seahawks' injury report from Week 2 might only be made up of one player.

It's likely that any bumps and bruises Seattle Seahawks players suffered Sunday don't hurt as much after a 27-7 thrashing of the Dallas Cowboys at the Clink. But the Seahawks did lose reserve cornerback Byron Maxwell to a hamstring injury in the first half -- he didn't return -- and wide receiver Sidney Rice also left the game in the second half.

WR Sidney Rice did not play after he was hit going over the middle in the second half, but coach Pete Carroll said he was not among the players injured Sunday.

That, according to the Seattle Times' Seahawks blog. It seems likely that Carroll took Rice out of the game with the Seahawks in control just as a precaution.

Seattle also played without left tackle Russell Okung Sunday, as he wasn't ready to return from a bruised knee. But it stands to reason that Okung will be back with the offensive line starters as soon as possible.
