Coach Pete Carroll told reporters after Friday's practice that Sidney Rice (knee, questionable) will be a game-time decision in Week 16 against San Francisco.
Carroll acknowledged that Rice is likely to play against the Niners, but the fact that his status won't be formally known until a pre-game workout suggests Rice isn't close to 100 percent. The 49ers' physical press coverage stifled Rice in these teams' Week 7 meeting, holding him to 32 yards on two receptions. Golden Tate didn't even record a catch. Rice is best viewed as a weak WR3 option in title week. The injury may affect his on-field impact.
Wow! What a conudrum! IF Rice doesn't fair well during the warmup, it only stands to reason that Golden Tate would possibly step up and be to go-to receiver for Wilson. Do I play it safe and bench Rice?
You're playing in the Sack- o bowl, right?
