Bears released DE Austen Lane and waived LB Khaseem Greene.
Lane was briefly on the Bears' 53-man roster last season, but made zero appearances. He's appeared in two total games since the end of the 2012 season. Going on 28, he's running out of time in the big leagues. Mon, May 11, 2015 03:14:00 PM

Bears signed DE Austen Lane.

He'll take the roster spot of DE Willie Young (Achilles'), who has officially been placed on injured reserve. A 2010 fifth-round pick of the Jags, Lane has made 30 career appearances, but couldn't make it past final cuts with the Bears last summer.

Bears waived or released DE Austen Lane, LB Jerry Franklin, WR Josh Bellamy, DT Tracy Robertson, DT Brandon Dunn, CB C.J. Wilson, WR Dale Moss, OL Ryan Groy, DL Lee Pegues, CB Al Louis-Jean and M.D. Jennings.

Lane played well in camp, but could not crack the final roster. M.D. Jennings was waived with an injury settlement. Bellamy flashed in the final preseason game, and could be re-signed once Marquess Wilson is placed on injured reserve/designated to return.

Bears signed DE Austen Lane, formerly of the Lions.

A 2010 fifth-round pick by the Jaguars, Lane appeared in two games last season, failing to record a statistic. He had three sacks across 17 appearances from 2011-2012. Lane isn't a cure for the Bears' defensive line woes.

Lions waived DE Austen Lane.

Lane was signed earlier this month and appeared in two games mainly on special teams while RE Ziggy Ansah was battling an ankle injury. G Rodney Austin was promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding move.
Wed, Nov 27, 2013 04:05:00 PM

Lions signed DE Austen Lane to a one-year contract.

Ziggy Ansah is nursing an ankle injury and the Lions were carrying just eight defensive linemen anyway. Lane, a 2010 fifth-round pick of the Jags, has been on the street since the Chiefs waived him at final cuts.
Tue, Nov 5, 2013 12:33:00 PM

Chiefs waived or released DE Austen Lane, OG Rokevious Watkins, CB Kennard Cox, LB Orie Lemon, OT Steven Baker, WR Josh Bellamy, S Malcolm Bronson, S Greg Castillo, OL Tommie Draheim, LB Darin Drakeford, WR Frankie Hammond, CB Semaj Moody, FB Toben Opurum, OT Matt Reynolds, WR Rico Richardson and DE Ridge Wilson.

Lane was claimed off waivers from the Jags in June. Although a promising prospect, Watkins has let poor conditioning derail his career. Cox and Lemon are both special teamers.

Chiefs claimed DE Austen Lane off waivers from the Jaguars and released DT Daniel Muir.

A run stopper lacking quick-twitch pass-rush ability, 6-foot-5, 275-pound Lane may prove a better fit for Kansas City's 3-4 than he was for Jacksonville's 4-3. He'll compete for a roster spot. Muir was a backup nose tackle.

Jaguars waived DE Austen Lane and CB Trey Wilson.

A fifth-round pick of the Jags in 2010, Lane managed just three sacks in his three seasons. He was buried on a defensive end depth chart that included Tyson Alualu, Jason Babin, Jeremy Mincey and Andre Branch. Wilson was an undrafted rookie out of Vanderbilt.
Thu, Jun 13, 2013 10:09:00 AM

Jaguars DE Austen Lane (foot) has been ruled out for Week 13.

With Lane out, newly acquired DE Jason Babin could get the start in his Jaguars debut. Coach Mike Mularkey was noncommittal on Babin's role. "We just have to make sure he’s on board with the calls and [stunts]. I don’t have a concern with that," Mularkey said. Babin notoriously struggled to produce fantasy relevant numbers with the Eagles this season. Despite the change of scenery, it's tough to trust him in IDP leagues.

Jaguars DE Austen Lane (ankle) has resumed practicing.

Lane opened camp as the starter at left end, but missed the preseason and the first two regular season games. He'll return as a backup to Jeremy Mincey and rookie Andre Branch.

Jaguars LE Austen Lane (ankle) is now expected to miss three weeks.

Lane's sprain is worse than anticipated. Originally scheduled to return in mid-August, the projected starting left end is now targeting early September. Expect a rotation with impressive second-round rookie Andre Branch.
Wed, Aug 8, 2012 07:31:00 AM

Jaguars DE Austen Lane is expected to miss two weeks due to a foot sprain.

Lane was penciled in as the Jags starting left end. His absence will give second-round rookie Andre Branch and George Selvie a chance to close ground.
Thu, Aug 2, 2012 05:57:00 PM

Austen Lane is currently working as the Jaguars' starting left end.

Position coach Joe Cullen recently said he's expecting "six, seven sacks" from Lane this season. He's getting the first shot at the starting job opposite Jeremy Mincey, but second-round pick Andre Branch, who figures to play a significant role regardless, will be on his heels. George Selvie is also in the mix.

The Jaguars expect DE Austen Lane to take a "major step forward" in his third NFL season.

Jags defensive line coach Joe Cullen envisions Lane going "from a sack, sack-and-a-half to getting six, seven sacks" if all goes as planned. Lane appeared in just six games last season, before suffering a significant shoulder injury. Now cleared to play by Dr. James Andrews, Lane will compete for playing time at left defensive end.
