Seahawks place Stephen Schilling on IR, activate Jeremy Lane
Cornerback Jeremy Lane’s season is resuming while center Stephen Schilling’s has come to an end.
The Seahawks activated Lane from injured reserve/designated for return list Saturday, as expected, and placed Schilling on injured reserve.
Lane has been on track to return Sunday against the Giants, the first game in which he’s eligible to play after re-aggravating a groin injury in the season opener and then missing the requisite eight weeks. Lane could immediately resume his role as Seattle’s nickel cornerback with Marcus Burley, his replacement the last seven games, listed as questionable due to a hamstring injury.
Schilling, a Bellevue native, started three games in place of Max Unger but then didn’t play against Oakland due to a knee injury, though he did suit up and was available in case of an emergency situation. Schilling missed all three practices this week.
Unger is returning after missing the last four games with a foot injury. With Schilling done for the season, Patrick Lewis becomes Unger’s backup at center.
