Now Percy Harvin has all the attention, but Rice is quietly trying to rebound from an injury-plagued second season.
Rice worked out at full speed Wednesday without his knee brace for the first time in ten months and felt no pain.
The intense workouts are taking place in Minnesota, where Rice is part of Larry Fitzgerald’s band of merry pass-catchers and special guests. (Cris Carter is there this week; Rice did not fall asleep listening to him.)
Rice is competing with Harvin for touches, but they should both be on the field plenty.
Harvin seems likely to play the slot often while Rice plays outside opposite Bernard Berrian.
