WR Sidney Rice to play Friday; CB Roy Lewis undergoes knee surgery
RENTON -- Wide receiver Sidney Rice will play in Friday's exhibition game at Kansas City, coach Pete Carroll said. Rice had not played in the previous two exhibition games as the Seahawks eased him back into action after undergoing two shoulder surgeries over the offseason.
Cornerback Roy Lewis was not at practice as he is undergoing knee surgery. Carroll did not specify what the nature of the knee injury was nor a timetable for his return. He did indicate it would not be as quick a recovery as guard John Moffitt, who might resume practice next week.
Lewis began last season on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list because of a knee injury, but Carroll said this is not the same knee.
The last knees update is of the sartorial variety: Seattle will be wearing grey pants on Friday. Actually, wolf grey. That's the official color.
Also, quarterback Matt Flynn did not practice Wednesday, which Carroll said was to give his arm a break.
