Rashee Rice Participates in Chiefs’ OTAs Amid Legal Troubles

By Jayson Henderson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Rashee Rice, wide receiver for the Kansas City Chiefs, is attending the team’s full-squad offseason practice sessions, according to a source speaking to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Rice also participated in earlier segments of the Chiefs’ offseason program, including virtual meetings.

This spring, Rice was arrested in Dallas and charged with aggravated assault, collision involving serious bodily injury, and six counts of collision involving injury after a six-car freeway crash. Police allege Rice was racing another vehicle at speeds up to 119 mph shortly before the incident.

Rice faces a lawsuit in Texas seeking over $1 million in actual damages and $10 million in punitive damages from two individuals who claim they were injured in the crash. He is also a suspect in an alleged assault at a Dallas nightclub earlier this month.

Last season, Rice led Chiefs’ wide receivers with 79 catches, 938 yards, and seven touchdowns as a rookie.
