WR Sidney Rice out with head injury for Seattle
Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice left Sunday’s game in the
third quarter with a head injury and was ruled out, while
linebacker David Hawthorne briefly left the game with a left knee
Rice was hurt early in the third quarter when he hit his head on
the turf trying to make a diving catch across the middle. He stood
up noticeably woozy and had to be helped off the field. Rice was
held without a catch.
Hawthorne came limping off pointing at his left leg after he was
caught in a pile in the third quarter. He was replaced by rookie
outside linebacker K.J. Wright, who shifted over to the middle to
take Hawthorne’s spot.
After being looked at in the locker room, Hawthorne returned
early in the fourth quarter.
