The Seahawks opened a roster spot Friday, waiving defensive tackle Travian Robertson, the club said.

A third-year pro from South Carolina, Robertson appeared in one game for the Seahawks after joining the club on November 18. The 26-year-old Robertson also appeared in 12 games as a reserve for Atlanta (2012-2013).

The Seahawks didn’t announce a corresponding move, leaving them one player under the limit.

The Seahawks have ruled out defensive end Demarcus Dobbs (ankle) and wideout Jermaine Kearse (hamstring) for Sunday’s game vs. St. Louis.  Cornerback Tharold Simon (shoulder), center Max Unger (knee, ankle), wideout Chris Matthews (hamstring) and tight end Cooper Helfet (ribs) are questionable for Seattle (11-4), which can clinch homefield advantage throughout the NFC playoffs with a win over the Rams.

UPDATE 11:19 p.m. ET: Curtis Crabtree of PFT and KJR Sports Radio in Seattle advises the Seahawks will not fill the open roster spot for the time being.
