Renton, WA ( - The Seattle Seahawks on Wednesday placed wide receiver Sidney Rice on season-ending injured reserve thanks to a torn ACL suffered in Monday night's win over St. Louis.

The seventh-year pro totaled 15 receptions for 231 yards and three touchdowns in eight games this season.

Rice also saw the 2011 campaign -- his first with Seattle -- ended with a stint on IR thanks to a concussion.

To fill the roster spot, the Seahawks elevated wideout Ricardo Lockette to the active roster and signed wide receiver Josh Lenz to the practice squad.
