Seattle Seahawks WR Sidney Rice getting knee treatment in Switzerland


While one Seattle Seahawks wide receiver is set to undergo the knife on his injured hip this Thursday, another of the team’s top pass catchers is overseas getting a treatment on his injured knee. Sidney Rice, who has been battling injuries since joining the Seahawks, is currently getting treatment on his knee in hopes of getting ready for Week 1 of the season.

The interesting part of treatment? It is taking place in Switzerland.

From ESPN Seattle’s Liz Mathews:

Rice will be back in Seattle by the end of the week.

The news came out of left field, but when you consider how fragile Rice has been in the past, it isn’t entirely shocking.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll seems certain that Rice will be ready to go to start the season, but we will have to wait and see. We shouldn’t expect to see him on the field at all during the preseason.

    The really interesting part of the surgery? It’s a NON-SURGICAL procedure.
