The Seahawks have activated cornerback Jeremy Lane from the IR, reports Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times (via Twitter). Lane should be able to see the field this Sunday against the Giants, his first action since the opening game against the Packers.
Lane was slotted to take most of the snaps as the nickel corner this season, and his injury has forced the Seahawks to find another viable corner after losing Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond to free agency. The team has responded with Marcus Burley, who has held his own given the opportunity.
The team has placed center Stephen Schilling on the IR to make room for Lane on the active roster. That will mark the end of the season for the former sixth-round pick. Schilling has started five games in his four seasons as a pro. He has three starts this season, but none in either 2012 or 2013 with the Chargers.
