Sidney Rice (ACL) has had an 'unbelievable recovery'

Seattle Times - [Full Article]

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said receiver Sidney Rice, who suffered an ACL injury at St. Louis on Oct. 28, is recovering quickly.

“He’s had an unbelievable recovery from his surgery,’’ Carroll said. “Within weeks he was back up with almost total reflection and extension and it’s just almost an unheard of type of recovery. It’s so far ahead of schedule, so that’s great for Sid. We’ll see how that turns out, but right off the bat we’ve never seen anybody (recover) like that.’’

Rice is due to make $9.7 million next season, leading to lots of speculation that the Seahawks may cut him, or ask him to restructure his contract.

Fantasy Impact: 

Rice is still expected to be cut. If Golden Tate also leaves via free agency, Doug Baldwin will be a nice sleeper in 2014 fantasy drafts. If Tate returns, the Seattle WR corps will be difficult to trust outside of a (hopefully) healthy Percy Harvin.
