Seahawks place Sidney Rice on IR

The Seattle Seahawks have placed wide receiver ending injured reserve, head coach Pete Carroll announced Wednesday.

Rice suffered his second concussion of the season in last Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Redskins, prompting his move to the IR. He was also concussed in a Week 10 win over the Ravens.

The former Pro Bowl wideout has 32 receptions for 484 yards and two touchdowns in nine games this season. He signed a five-year deal with the Seahawks during the offseason after spending the first four years of his career with the Vikings.

Seattle (4-7) hosts the Eagles Thursday night.
