The Seattle Times - [Full Article]

Seahawks WR Sidney Rice went on injured reserve last December after suffering his second concussion in the span of three games, but it was the news that he underwent surgery on both shoulders after the season that was most surprising. He had the labrum repaired in each.

Rice had the right shoulder operated on first, the left one a month and a half later, and while Rice is out running on the field, he still hasn't been cleared for contact.

"Everything is feeling good, right on pace to be ready for the season," Rice said. "I'm going to continue to push it."

Had the shoulders been an ongoing problem for Rice before the surgery? "It has," Rice said. "A lot of slipping out, popping out, going back into place. Right now, they're supposed to be brand-new shoulders and take it from here. I've got to continue to gain my strength back in those shoulders and prepare for the season."

Fantasy Impact: 

If healthy, Rice certainly has the talent to be a top 20 WR, but those shoulders are a huge concern. We currently have him ranked #39 in standard scoring formats.
