Rice subsequently put fears to rest when he told the *The Star Tribune* on Thursday, "Everything is alright. I'll be ready to go at camp ... We had it looked at [by doctors] and no surgery."
"I'll be ready to buckle it up at the start," he said. "We'll just watch it as camp goes on. But I'll be ready."
Rosenhaus tweeted the update on Thursday in response to rumors that Rice suffered from a groin injury requiring surgery.
He said Rice "does not anticipate that this injury will require surgery and he's hopeful that he will be fully healthy for the start of the season."
"I can run," Rice told the newspaper. "I'm jogging and sprinting. I'm just not doing a lot of cutting and different things like that. The doctors feel this is the best thing."
