Seahawks’ Sidney Rice sits again with shoulder injury

Sep 18, 2011, 12:43 PM | Updated: 3:58 pm

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said wide receiver Sidney Rice has “some damage” in his shoulder but is confident that the injury isn’t as serious as the one that put tight end John Carlson on injured reserve.

Rice, the Seahawks’ biggest offseason acquisition, sat out the team’s Week 2 loss to the Steelers, missing his second straight game.

Carroll told reporters afterward that he was unaware of a
report from FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer that suggested Rice likely has a torn labrum and is trying to avoid having surgery during the season.

Rice was limited in practice last week. Carroll said it’s possible that he could play in next week’s home opener against the Cardinals.

“He’s responding very well,” Carroll said. “So we need to see if he’s ready to go. This will be a big week for us to test him. He was about 80 percent last week, I would think. If you had watched practice you would think that he could play. But we didn’t hit him, we didn’t knock him around.

“So we won’t know until we get him more active in practice. We’ll know more this week.”

Carroll said the team suffered no significant injuries on Sunday.
