RENTON, Wash. — The Seattle Seahawks on Tuesday waived veteran wide receiver Braylon Edwards and placed 2011 No. 1 draft choice offensive lineman James Carpenter on the reserve/non-football illness list, ending his season.

Rookie guard Rishaw Johnson was signed to the 53-man roster from the team’s practice squad.

Carpenter missed the final seven games last season after damaging his left knee during practice.

After playing right tackle last season, Carpenter moved to left guard this year and started seven games. With Carpenter out, John Moffitt will step in at left guard, as he did Sunday against the Chicago Bears, when Carpenter left early.

Carpenter’s “non-football illness” wasn’t specified.

Edwards was signed as a free agent in late July and caught eight passes for 74 yards and one touchdown in limited action in the Seahawks’ first 12 games. Five of his receptions came in the season opener against the Cardinals.

Johnson has been a member of the practice squad since the day after he was released on the final roster cut in September. He was signed as a free agent following the NFL Draft in April.
