The "I" in R.I.C.E for injuries outdated?

Over the recent years I have seen on line certain individuals preaching not to ice injuries. This if I understand correctly is the feeling that the icing interferes with the natural processes the body to repair itself properly. Has this notion been actually been studied clinically and if so does anyone know the results?
