WR takes hard hit to back of head
|Sidney Rice won Sundayís game for his team, catching a pass near the Chicago end zone before crossing the plane for a touchdown. But as he fell to the end zone, he took a hard shot to the head, and he appeared to be unconscious or close to it, with his arms locked in a way that was eerily similar to the concussion Lions running back Jahvid Best suffered in college at California.
But Rice, per a league source, has not yet been diagnosed with a concussion. Whether he eventually is or isnít, itís amazing that he has avoided a diagnosis so far. (Pro Football Talk)|
FF Today's Take: For anyone who saw the hit, it would seem as if it is only a matter of time before he receives the diagnosis, however. For now, he should be considered highly questionable at best for a Week 14 matchup against Arizona. In such a scenario, the team would likely lean more heavily on Golden Tate in the passing game.
