Sidney Rice not practicing with sore foot

The most significant news out of Pete Carroll’s press conference this afternoon is receiver Sidney Rice will not practice because of a foot issue.

Carroll said that Rice has had an issue with his toe all season, and will wear a boot this week to help the injury heal.

Carroll did say there’s a chance that Rice is not available for Sunday’s game. And if that’s the case, Charly Martin would step in as the team’s flanker, although the rotation would change depend on the situation.

Carroll also said the team will wear the Wolf Grey jerseys for the first time this season.

John Moffitt and J.R. Sweezy will continue to split time at right guard. And Carroll said that Leroy Hill will return to practice this week, but will have to compete for his job with Malcolm Smith, who played well in his absence.

Cornerback Marcus Trufant (hamstring) is not expected to practice for a third straight week.
