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.
