Rice said later on Friday that he hopes his recent procedure will help him deal with his patellar tendonitis, according to KJR-AM.
Our primary question is why Rice -- bothered by knee issues late last season -- would participate in a preseason tilt if questions remain about his health. With Harvin facing a long rehab from hip surgery, the Seahawks will ask Rice to play an every-down role for much of the season. No reason to rush to rush him back, but maybe Switzerland is just a magical place.
UPDATE: Carroll said during a news conference Friday that Rice will practice Sunday.
