I’ve received a lot of email concerning Sidney Rice and the problems he was having with his legs after his 1st TD reception, a 7-yarder in the back corner of the endzone that required him to out-leap a trio of defenders.
Rice rose to catch the ball and came down with both feet in bounds, but he was slow to get up and was quickly meeting with trainers once he got to the sideline.
But Rice said it was nothing serious; only cramps.
“That was just cramping,” Rice said after the game. “I did a lot of running around. I guess I didn’t have enough fluids in my body. When I came down, my calves started cramping. It’s nothing serious. It didn’t bother me much.”
You can believe that. Rice was back in the game on the next series and scored another TD when Tarvaris Jackson hit him along the Seahawks sideline and Rice broke a tackle and outsprinted the rest of Seattle’s defense to the endzone for a 34-yard score to make the score 35-3 (following the PAT).
So it sounds and appears as if whatever was bothering Rice after his 1st TD really was nothing serious. We won’t know for sure until Wednesday’s injury report is released.
