Carroll says Rice's chances are 'very slim' to face Eagles

It's a near certainty that the Seattle Seahawks will be without wide receiver Sidney Rice in Thursday night's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday the chances were "very slim" that Rice would play after suffering a concussion during last weekend's 23-17 loss to the Washington Redskins.

Rice, who didn't practice Tuesday, has dealt with minor injuries all season. He missed the first two games of the season with a shoulder injury, and he has been listed on the injury report with a knee injury as well as a previous concussion in Week 10.

Ben Obomanu would start if Rice is unable to play.

Tarvaris Jackson, who has been playing through a pectoral injury since Oct. 9, took part in full practice Tuesday, and Carroll said the quarterback would take on a larger workload than he had done in previous weeks.
