The Seahawks have activated cornerback Jeremy Lane, as expected, and released running back Bryce Brown to make room for him on the active roster before Sunday’s game vs. Pittsburgh.

Lane started the year on the Phycially Unable to Perform (PUP) list after suffering wrist and ankle injuries in the Seahawks’ Super Bowl loss last February. He has been active in practice for the past three weeks.

The addition of Lane comes at a time when the Seahawks could use his services after starting right cornerback Cary Williams was benched in last week’s win over the 49ers. Lane could be used on the outside or in the slot – where he started for Seattle before his injury last year – depending on how the Seahawks use DeShawn Shead and Williams.

This is the second time this season the Seahawks have released Brown. He was first signed by the team on Oct. 27 when Thomas Rawls had a calf injury, was dropped last weekend to make room for linebacker Eric Pinkins, then brought back Tuesday to provide backfield depth after Marshawn Lynch underwent sports hernia surgery.
