Rashee Rice works out with Kansas City Chiefs teammate Patrick Mahomes amid legal woes

Kansas City Chiefs receiver Rashee Rice is back in the lab amid his legal woes.

Rice, who caught six receptions for 39 yards in the Chiefs' 25–22 overtime victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 58 in February, turned himself into Dallas police last week after being charged with eight felony counts for his role in a multi-car crash that sent two people to the hospital. Rice was released from jail after posting bond.

Rice, 23, returned to the field amid his ongoing case to workout with Patrick Mahomes at the Chiefs quarterback's annual camp in Texas. Rice shared videos on Instagram of himself running routes and catching passes. "I've worked with Rashee (Rice) brought the offseason, just in general. I'm sure we'll continue that work as the legal process plays out," Mahomes confirmed on Monday.

Rice is facing one count of aggravated assault, one count of collision involving serious bodily injury and six counts of collision involving injury following the accident in north Dallas on March 30, where police said Rice lost control of his Lamborghini while racing Southern Methodist cornerback Teddy Knox. Both Rice and Knox are being sued for more than $10 million for damages from people injured in the crash.

Earlier this week, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said Rice will participate in the first phase of the team's virtual, voluntary offseason program via Zoom as the police investigation into the crash continues.

“As far as Rashee Rice and his situation,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said on Monday, “I’m leaving that like we’ve done for most of these, just for the law enforcement part of it to take place. Then we will go from there with that.”

Reid added that the Chiefs will "keep gathering information from law enforcement" about Rice's case to determine if he will participate in the team's limited on-field work starting later this month.

An investigation conducted by Dallas Police determined that Rice, who was driving a Lamborghini, and Knox, who was driving a Corvette, were "speeding in the far-left lane" of North Central Expressway on March 30 before the drivers lost control and caused a “chain reaction collision involving four other vehicles." Police said the drivers and occupants from both the Corvette and Lamborghini "all ran from the scene without stopping to determine if anyone needed medical help or providing their information." The crash was caught on dash-cam video.

The NFL is monitoring Rice's case and he could face future discipline under the league's personal conduct policy.
