UPDATE: It looks like wide receiver Percy Harvin won't be back in time for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. This isn't a shocker by any stretch of the imagination--the Seahawks are taking their time in getting Harvin back in the groove. Still, this likely solidifies how important it is for the other wideouts to step up.

They're not new--Golden TateDoug Baldwin especially are gaining experience. However, it will be interesting to see how the passing game unfolds with the absence of Rice and before the return of Harvin. Jermaine Kearse might end up being the most intriguing wild card. Read on for more about the implications of the Rice absence.

The Seattle Seahawks announced Tuesday that wide receiver Sidney Rice will miss the remainder of the season with a torn ACL. The loss comes on the heels of last night's win over the Rams in which the Seahawks gained a meager 135 yards. Percy Harvin is on his way back from the hip surgery he had in August but what does the blow mean for the other offensive weapons?
