Sidney Rice underwent a procedure for a muscle in his knee in Switzerland of all places. And if that sounds vague, well, it’s because coach Pete Carroll didn’t have much detail to provide about the procedure, other than to say it wasn’t serious.
“I’m not going to try to tell you what it is,” Carroll said. “This is way beyond my pay scale.”
Carroll said Rice will be gone for a couple of days but should return to practice when he’s back. He shouldn’t miss any preseason or regular season games. Carroll wouldn’t call the procedure preventative, but he did say it’s not surgery.
“He didn’t get hurt,” Carroll said. “We’re just trying to help him because we have something going that we think will help him, and I can’t tell you what it is because I’d make a mistake.”
Rice practiced during training camp before flying to Switzerland, although Rice had limited reps during practices.
