It looks like the Seahawks will have wide receiver Sidney Rice in the lineup when they take on the Bills in Toronto this Sunday.
Rice was in a walking boot earlier this week and missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday because of a bruised foot he suffered in last week’s 58-0 romp over the Cardinals. but he was able to be a full participant in practice on Friday. That earned him a probable listing and an expected role as a target for Russell Wilson as the Seahawks try to keep the heat on the 49ers ahead of next weekend’s game.
Rice leads Seahawks receivers with 45 catches and 658 yards this season and he’s tied with Golden Tate for the lead in touchdowns with seven.
The Seahawks will be short in the secondary, though. Walter Thurmond has been ruled out of the game with a hamstring injury. Thurmond was expected to start in place of the suspended and the Seahawks will also be playing without cornerback Marcus Trufant. That means expanded roles for Byron Maxwell and Jeremy Lane on Sunday.
