                 === Seahawks' Rice uncertain to face Bears ===
 Renton,  WA  (Sports Network) - Seattle  Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice is
 listed  as questionable  for Sunday's  game  against the  Chicago Bears  after
 hurting his calf during Friday's practice.
 Rice  did not complete Friday's session due to the injury, of which the extent
 is unknown along with his status for this weekend's matchup.
 The  sixth-year pro has played in all 11 contests for the Seahawks this season
 after  being limited to  just 15 games over the past two years by a variety of
 ailments,  and  leads the team  with 37 catches  and 524 receiving yards while
 recording six touchdowns.
 Nickel  back Marcus  Trufant, meanwhile,  is  considered doubtful  to suit  up
 against the Bears after exiting Thursday's practice with a hamstring problem.
 "At  the end of practice (Thursday), Marcus felt (something in) his hamstring,
 said  head  coach Pete Carroll.  "He's got an issue  there that we're going to
 have  to  deal with.  We put him  down as doubtful.  We're real surprised that
 popped up. It's going to be hard for him to get back from that."
 A  pair  of defensive starters, end  Red Bryant and linebacker Leroy Hill, are
 questionable  as  well after missing  the entire  week of practices. Bryant is
 dealing with a foot injury, while Hill strained his calf during Sunday's 24-21
 loss at Miami.
 Running back Marshawn Lynch (back) is expected to play this week after putting
 in full practices on Thursday and Friday.
