Sidney Rice (ACL) has had an 'unbelievable recovery'
Thursday, February 6, 2014, 11:35am
“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.
Percy Harvin not expected to play in regular season

The Seahawks regard WR Percy Harvin as a long-term, year-to-year asset. While he hasn’t paid dividends yet, the Seahawks have been better than fine without him. If he can contribute in the postseason, it’ll be an added benefit.
With the Seahawks likely to handle their business at home in the postseason, the ultimate goal should be to have a full package of plays for Harvin ready to go for Super Bowl XLVIII, the next time they’ll have to leave CenturyLink Field after closing out the season with back-to-back home games against the Cardinals and Rams.
When it comes to players returning from long-term injuries, for every Michael Crabtree there's a Percy Harvin. It doesn't look like he will help owners this year, though his recent setback doesn't make it much of a surprise. Doug Baldwin will continue to be a Sneaky Start in his absence. He is the #22 WR since taking over as a starter after Sidney Rice's knee injury.
Darrelle Revis playing more press man coverage
Friday, November 1, 2013, 11:10am
Buccaneers CB Darrelle Revis said during his weekly radio show on WDAE (620 AM) on Thursday that his reconstructed left knee prohibited him from playing the press man style that has made him arguably the best cornerback in the league.
“Earlier in the year, I didn’t have the explosion to play press; the receiver would just run the (vertical) 9-route on me and I didn’t have the stamina to do that play in and play out, especially playing press.
“I mean, you get physical up there playing press coverage and then actually just running. That’s running full speed — you and the receiver. I didn’t have that yet.
“I’m starting to get that back now, which is awesome because I like to be in receivers faces and try to put my hands on them and try to be physical with them.”
Revis said he began to play more press coverage a week ago during the Bucs loss to Carolina, when he spent a good part of the day shadowing Panthers Pro Bowl receiver Steve Smith. He said he responded well physically to that test.
If Revis is going to shadow Golden Tate (who caught two TDs against the Rams in Week 8), it may cause for concern for Tate owners. With Sidney Rice (ACL) out, Tate may see more targets, which could offset the bad matchup. Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse could get a few extra opportunities if QB Russell Wilson avoids throwing in Revis's direction.
Percy Harvin ruled out; Doug Baldwin likely to start

“You’ll see those guys out there quite often,’’ said Seattle offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.
USA Today's Lindsay Jones said on Twitter: "Pete Carroll didn't have media availability today in Seattle, but he told Sirius that Percy Harvin won't play this week vs. Tampa."
In 23 games where Doug Baldwin has seen 4+ targets, he has averaged 3.8-53-.26 (WR4 numbers). In 15 games with 5+ targets he has posted 4.4-63-.40 (WR3 numbers). He's a low-end WR3 this week in most formats.

Kearse is a viable desperation play if Harvin sits another week, though we would rather bet on Doug Baldwin in a tight spot. Kearse has two TDs on the season and could surprise against a shaky Bucs secondary.
Sidney Rice has concussion, torn ACL
Tuesday, October 29, 2013, 1:58pm
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll also said that Rice has concussion symptoms. Rice ended 2011 on IR after two concussions in three weeks. The knee injury reported at the same time as the concussion turns out to be a torn ACL, according to PFT's source. It's now especially possible Percy Harvin plays this week after coming close last week. Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse could also see an increase in snaps.

Seattle receiver Sidney Rice, who has been dealing with knee issues since training camp, left the game in the second quarter with what was initially reported as a knee injury.
Carroll later said Rice both “banged his knee’’ and also his head.
Carroll gave no indication how long Rice may be out. We very well may see Percy Harvin back in action this week if Rice is unable to go against the winless Bucs.
