Sidney Rice cleared for full contact

The Seattle Times - [Full Article]

Seahawks WR Sidney Rice practiced the first two weeks wearing a red jersey, denoting no contact. That's gone this week as Rice is now participating in team drills, and even diving for balls. Rice won't play in Saturday's exhibition game at Denver, but his practice regimen is a sign of progress and that he may indeed be ready when the regular season begins.

"This is his first week back, getting banged around so we'll give him some time," coach Pete Carroll said. "See how that goes."

Fantasy Impact:
