How Can Seattle Seahawks Cope With Sidney Rice’s Injury?
The Seattle Seahawks might have to rely on the running game a bit more as it has been reported that receiver Sidney Rice will miss the rest of the season after tearing his ACL in Seattle’s win against the St. Louis Rams yesterday.
Thankfully for the Seahawks, Marshawn Lynch is having a great season and Golden Tate is having a breakout year as a legit threat on deep plays, but the team will certainly miss the presence of Rice who ranked third in the team in catches with 15 for 231 yards. Rice also caught three touchdowns this year.
Hopefully, Percy Harvin will be back for this week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a matchup the Seahawks are clear favorites, but they can’t take anything for granted as they also were considered favorites against the Rams, and we all know what happened yesterday.
Perhaps Russell Wilson will get more carries going forward. Or maybe Lynch will see an even more prominent role on the offense. Even Tate can be slotted into a bigger role as an offensive weapon thanks to his play this season.
And it wouldn’t hurt if they can get Harvin back on the field sooner rather than later. Harvin would be the perfect replacement for Rice as he would become the No. 1 offensive threat of this team if healthy.
One thing is certain, though, and that is the Seahawks will definitively miss Rice, but they have enough weapons to cope with his absence for the rest of the year.
