RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Rookie wide receiver Paul Richardson will miss the rest of the playoffs for the Seattle Seahawks after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

The team confirmed Richardson's injury on Sunday night. Fox Sports first reported the injury.

Richardson was injured in the second half of Seattle's 31-17 win over Carolina in an NFC divisional playoff game on Saturday night.

Richardson landed hard on his left knee jumping for a deep pass from Russell Wilson and walked off the field with a significant limp. He did not return.

Richardson also tore the ACL in his left knee in college at Colorado.
