Report: Chiefs WR Rashee Rice participating in OTAs

Kansas City Chiefs second-year wide receiver Rashee Rice, embroiled in legal issues stemming from two separate offseason incidents, will be a participant in all of the team’s voluntary offseason activities, ESPN reported Monday.

Monday is the start of the Chiefs’ Phase 3 of OTAs, bringing together rookies and veterans.

Rice, 24, is accused of assaulting a photographer at a Dallas nightclub earlier this month. The photog was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The wide receiver, who grew up in the Dallas area and played for SMU, was already in trouble in the city for his connection to a six-car crash on March 30. Rice turned himself in to police several days later and faces one count of aggravated assault, one count of collision involving serious bodily injury and six counts of collision involving injury.

Seven people were left with injuries, including at least one woman who sustained “serious bodily injury” and another who was stranded on the highway with her 4-year-old son for about five hours after the crash.

The Chiefs are bracing for a multi-game suspension for Rice, ESPN previously reported. The team and the league are waiting for the legal process to play out on both incidents.

Rice was second only to Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce in catches (79) and receiving yards (938) as a rookie in 2023. He led the Super Bowl champions with seven receiving touchdowns.
