As expected, the Seahawks have activated cornerback Jeremy Lane off the physically unable to perform list in advance of their Week 12 game, the team announced today in a press release. To create room on the 53-man roster for Lane, the club has waived running back Bryce Brown for the second time in the last seven days.
Lane, 25, last saw the field in the Super Bowl, when he broke his arm and tore his ACL on an interception return, forcing him to undergo multiple offseason surgeries. The former sixth-round pick has appeared in 35 regular season contests and another eight playoff games since joining the Seahawks in 2012, but that Super Bowl interception was the first of his career — it turned out to be a costly one.
As for Brown, the former Eagles and Bills running back has now had two stints on Seattle’s roster this season, but neither has resulted in any game action for him. This time around, he wasn’t even on the Seahawks’ roster for a game, having been re-signed on Tuesday and waived today.
