Sidney Rice is full speed at Seattle Seahawks practice

Two weeks after a fun-filled, 10,000-mile round trip to Switzerland for a 20-minute blood-manipulation treatment on his knee, Sidney Rice was going full speed in Seattle Seahawks practice Monday.

The Seahawks' offense enjoyed one of its best days of training camp, according to The Seattle Times, scoring almost at will in a red-zone drill. It's no coincidence that the passing attack is starting to jell with its No. 1 receiver approaching full strength.

With Rice back on track and Golden Tate poised for a breakout season, Russell Wilson is confident the Seahawks can withstand the extended absence of Percy Harvin.

Throw in steady third receiver Doug Baldwin and an intriguing wild card in Jermaine Kearse, and there's more depth than expected.

Coach Pete Carroll's squad rushed an NFL-high 536 times last season while bringing up the rear in pass attempts. Even with Wilson emerging as one of the league's best young quarterbacks, the Seahawks simply don't lean on their wide receivers as much as other teams.
