Sidney Rice Will Be Placed on the Injured Reserve

The Seahawks announced Wednesday that Sidney Rice will go to the Injured Reserve, ending his season. Rice has suffered two concussions in the last two weeks and has also been battling a few other nagging injuries, most notably a partially torn labrum in his shoulder. He'll finish this season with 32 receptions for 482 yards and two touchdowns in nine games.

What this amounts to, essentially, is that the Seahawks really don't care to risk him further to more serious injury in a season where the playoffs are out of the picture. They'll get Rice healed up and ready to go next year, and the next five games will give them a chance to further evaluate Golden Tate and the until-now inactive Deon Butler, who will be activated for this week's game.

Rice missed the first two games of the season, has missed portions of other games along the way, and has been more or less banged up the entire year. The Seahawks will now rely on Mike Williams, Ben Obomanu, Doug Baldwin, Golden Tate, and Deon Butler as their active roster receivers. Kris Durham has already been shut down for the year with a labrum injury.

Linebacker Mike Morgan was promoted from the practice squad and will fill his roster spot.
