Seahawks coach Pete Carroll revealed Thursday that WR Sidney Rice has left training camp to undergo a non-surgical procedure on his knee in Switzerland. It's not unusual for players to travel to Europe for the blood-manipulation treatment known as Regenokine, though Carroll declined to give specifics in this case.
Rice's visit has been planned for awhile. He's leaving now because this is the earliest the clinic could accommodate his appointment.
This came out of no where and is cause for a little concern with the status of Percy Harvin up in the air. But, Carroll is reportedly optimistic that Rice will not miss any games, even of the preseason variety, and expects him to return fresh and in better condition, according to sources.
