RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Sidney Rice sat down to watch film Wednesday morning and started counting the familiar faces and names.
It wasn't 11 for 11, but there are plenty of players on Minnesota's defense that Rice knows very well from when he played for the Vikings.
Rice is one of the few certainties the Seattle Seahawks have at wide receiver going into this week's key home game against the Vikings, which could affect the NFC playoff race. With Ben Obomanu on injured reserve and questions about the health of Doug Baldwin and Braylon Edwards, the Seahawks could head into Sunday's game with just four healthy wide receivers.
Rice, Golden Tate, Charly Martin and practice squad call-up Jermaine Kearse are the only receivers expected to be fully healthy for the Vikings.
