“I’m feeling pretty good,” he said, shrugging his shoulders and then lifting both arms. “I’m going to continue this rehab and get back out as soon as possible.
“I’m feeling better and better every day, and getting stronger every day.”
Rice admits he would’ve played the entire 2011 season with both shoulders injured. The only reason he went on season ending injured reserve is because of the two concussions he suffered.
“The shoulder wasn’t really the problem, I was battling through that concussion thing,” he said. “That’s a league policy, and I can’t argue with that. But I could have played through the shoulders the whole season, no doubt.”
“The left one wasn’t bothering as much, but I figured there was something wrong with it because it would hurt some times,” Rice said. “So when they got in there they saw that it was a full tear.”
