Sidney Rice’s lingering hip injury has lingered longer than expected, placing him on the active/PUP list to start training camp.
Rice admitted that two of the three specialists he saw this offseason recommended surgery, but he decided not to have it.
“The plan now is just to rehab and getting everything back like it’s
supposed to be,” Rice said on Friday, according to Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
The injury first occurred in the NFC Championship game, but Rice said there’s no doubt he’ll be ready to take on Jabari Greer, Tracy Porter, and the rest of the Saints secondary during the season opener.
