Clearing Up The Sidney Rice Questions

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 23, 2009 – 4:40 pm

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.

    Rice has come into his own and harvin is doing well and berrian seems to get better every week.I was happy to see jackson get in and he showed he can play.I know it will be his team soon and he can’t help but learn watching favre.Chilly was letting us know he believes in t-jack and he also showed he can use his head by resting favre and not risking injury to him.
