So, what did he do with the rest of his time in Zurich? Sidney Rice lets out a yell after missing a catch at the opening day of Seahawks training camp July 25.

Rice on Sunday told Q13-TV that a Seahawks fan living in Switzerland reached out to Rice on Twitter after seeing that the star wide receiver was in town, and invited Rice to a barbecue. Rice responded with a private message and got the address. After the treatment I actually showed up at his house, played a game of Madden (the video game) with him and his brother, Rice told Q13. They were pretty stoked. That was pretty cool. So, is Rice as dominant in Madden as he is on the football field? It came down to the very last second, he said.
Rice back from Europe after treatment

Rice spent two nights in Europe and said the procedure took only about 20 minutes. “It was something I set up earlier in the offseason a little after the OTAs and it was a long process, things I had to go through with the doctors over there,” Rice said. “I was just fortunate that Coach gave me the opportunity to go over there and get it done and thankful for my teammates not making a big deal about leaving practice, leaving them here in camp and going and getting it done. I’m grateful to be in a good organization like this to go handle that.” Rice, hampered by knee issues late last season, finished the 2012 campaign with 50 catches for 748 yards and seven touchdowns. He hopes making the effort to travel to Europe pays off with another full season. “You want to be out there on the field as much as possible and help your team win games. That’s the best part about being part of a program like this, you get to battle with your teammates,” Rice said. “(I’m) just hoping to be out there on the field as long as possible.” Meanwhile, Carroll said fellow wide receiver Percy Harvin , who underwent hip surgery Thursday, plans to do the early part of his rehab in New York where the operation took place.
Q&A with Sidney Rice
At the very least, it would be a surprise to see Rice play in the preseason, even if he is back stateside next month. The Seahawks signed Rice to a five-year, $41 million contract after the 2011 lockout. Injuries, including multiple concussions in 2011, has limited Rice to 25 games over his two seasons in Seattle, during which the 2009 Pro Bowler has 82 receptions for 1,232 yards and nine touchdowns. Rice had an impressive 2012, staying healthy for all 16 games and catching 50 passes, seven for touchdowns, and was 14th among wide receivers in Football Outsiders’ receiving DYAR (Defense-adjusted Yards Above Replacement) metric. Rice is scheduled to earn $8.5 million in base salary this season, $3.5 million of which is guaranteed for injury. Between Rice’s injuries, the Seahawks trading for Harvin and signing him to a long-term extension and the club being high on 2010 second-round pick and 2014 unrestricted free agent Golden Tate, who was 18th in receiving DYAR and emerged as a threat after the catch as well as on the perimeter, 2013 is shaping up to be Rice’s final season with the Seahawks. After this season, Rice, who doesn’t turn 27 until Sept. 1, will have two years and $17.5 million remaining on his contract, but the Seahawks could save that cash and $7.3 million in cap space by releasing Rice next offseason.
Sidney Rice fantasy update: Knee injury won’t hinder fantasy status
Sunday, Sept. 15, 2013 Sidney Rice fantasy update: Knee injury won’t hinder fantasy status Related In partnership with SBNation.com By Jack Choros Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday night’s game against the San Francisco 49ers . He was a full participant in practice on both Thursday and Friday and will start as usual. More: For more Seahawks info, visit Field Gulls Once considered a rising star and future go-to guy after coming over from the Minnesota Vikings in 2011, Rice was only targeted three times by quarterback Russell Wilson in Week 1. Fantasy Impact: It looks as if Rice might well be behind both Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin on the depth chart in Seattle. That’s bad news for his fantasy stock when you consider that Percy Harvin (hip) is expected to play by Week 7 or 8 depending on how much he progresses. This would surely be a crushing blow to Rice’s fantasy value and he’ll eventually be no more than a flex option at best.
