I had a chance to talk to wide receiver Sidney Rice the other day. Rice talked about his recovery from a right knee injury, his offseason workouts in Miami, his goals for next season. Here is some of what he said: Q: How is your knee? (Rice suffered a sprained PCL in week 2) Rice: It’s getting better. I can really tell that it’s getting better. I’m not 100 percent yet. But I’m running routes full speed and feeling pretty good. The coaches were watching me run the other day and they can tell I’m making progress with it. I’m not too far off from it. But I should be ready coming into training camp. Q: You said you’re close to 100 percent? What is still missing? Rice: I still feel a little pain when I do get up to full speed or when I’m getting close to it. My main thing is strengthening my quad and my hamstring. I’ve been doing a pretty good job. When we start these OTAs I’m going to be spending extra time in the training room running in the pool on the treadmill and doing little exercises. Those exercises help me out a lot.
