Seahawks CB Jeremy Lane (groin) is doubtful for Week 5 against the Rams.

This doesn't come as a surprise after Lane missed practice all week. Lane's absence is an upgrade for Cooper Kupp, who runs most of his routes in the slot. Justin Coleman will replace Lane in subpackages.
Oct 6 - 6:10 PM

Seahawks CB Jeremy Lane has a strained groin and is uncertain for Week 5 against the Rams.

Lane left Week 4 against the Colts and was immediately ruled out. If he is unable to play in Week 5, Justin Coleman would pick up more defensive snaps.
Oct 2 - 6:25 PM

Seahawks CB Jeremy Lane left Week 4 with a groin injury.

Lane was immediately ruled out, suggesting it's a serious injury. Shaq Griffin replaced him opposite Richard Sherman.
Oct 1 - 8:52 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Seahawks are gauging the trade value of CB Jeremy Lane.

The Seahawks are doing the same with RB Alex Collins and WR Jermaine Kearse. Expected to start opposite Richard Sherman, Lane is a much more surprising name, however. If this report is accurate, Seattle's willingness to move him suggests they are comfortable with third-round rookie Shaquill Griffin starting. Lane has three years left on his deal, but he can be cut with few cap ramifications after this year.
Aug 31 - 10:55 AM

ESPN's Sheil Kapadia considers Seahawks CB Jeremy Lane the clear favorite to start opposite Richard Sherman.

Lane was expected to face stiff competition from third-rounder Shaq Griffin, but has evidently seized control of the job. Per Kapadia, Lane has been "arguably the team's most impressive player through the first three practices." Lane wasn't great in the slot last year, but it's likely he'll kick inside in nickel situations.
Aug 1 - 6:41 PM

Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times believes CB Jeremy Lane has a "sizeable edge" in the battle to start opposite Richard Sherman.

Lane was not particularly good as a slot corner last season, but he earned praise from coach Pete Carroll for his work this offseason. He will need to beat out third-round CB Shaq Griffin and Neiko Thorpe for the job. Regardless of if he wins the "starting" job, Lane will be the primary slot corner in sub packages.
Jul 6 - 12:58 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed Jeremy Lane is the early favorite to start opposite Richard Sherman.

"Jeremy has really applied himself," said Carroll. "He sees the opportunity. Across the board, everybody’s evaluation is that he’s really focused, really tuned in, he’s really ready to go for it." Lane is coming off a disastrious 2016, getting exposed as a tackler and grading near the bottom of PFF's ratings. Scheme familiarity and veteran status are working in his favor with Deshawn Shead (knee) sidelined. Rookie Shaq Griffin will push Lane in training camp.

Seahawks CB Jeremy Lane's $4 million salary became guaranteed on Friday.

Lane had a rough year for Seattle, grading out as PFF's 104th cornerback out of 120 qualifiers. Coach Pete Carroll criticized Lane's tackling, but praised him for competing his "tail off." With RCB Deshawn Shead's (knee) status up in the air for Week 1, keeping Lane was a no-brainer for the Seahawks.
Feb 11 - 10:28 AM

Seahawks re-signed CB Jeremy Lane to a four-year, $23 million contract.

The deal includes $11 million guaranteed. Turning 26 this July, Lane is a quality young slot corner whose durability limited his market value. He was a difference maker when healthy down the stretch of last season, however, playing stingy slot coverage and intercepting two passes in the final six games. The Seahawks' secondary should return intact with Richard Sherman and Deshawn Shead at outside corner, Lane in the slot, and Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor manning the safeties.

Seahawks activated CB Jeremy Lane (knee) from reserve/PUP.

Lane missed the first 10 games, but has been practicing the last few weeks. He’ll make his season debut Sunday against the Steelers. Seattle waived Bryce Brown in a corresponding move.

Coach Pete Carroll said the Seahawks will activate CB Jeremy Lane (knee) off reserve/PUP this week.

He's been practicing the past couple weeks after tearing his ACL in last season's Super Bowl. Lane is expected to push burn victim CB Cary Williams and slot CB DeShawn Shead for snaps behind shutdown CB Richard Sherman.
Mon, Nov 23, 2015 06:40:00 PM

Seahawks placed CB Jeremy Lane (arm, knee) on the reserve/PUP list.

Lane tore his ACL and broke his arm making one of the best plays of the Super Bowl. It's more likely than not that Seattle's would-be slot corner spends the entire year on reserve/PUP.
Mon, Aug 31, 2015 04:16:00 PM

Seahawks CB Jeremy Lane (arm, knee) has experienced setbacks in his recovery.

Lane won't be ready for training camp and seems doubtful for Week 1 coming off a broken arm and torn ACL. Will Blackmon or Marcus Burley will open the season as the slot corner between LCB Richard Sherman and RCB Cary Williams.
Thu, Jun 18, 2015 05:08:00 PM

Seahawks CB Jeremy Lane has had a setback with his broken arm.

Also recovering from a torn ACL, Lane was already highly doubtful for Week 1. Now he's all but assured of beginning the year on the reserve/PUP list. Will Blackmon is running as the starting nickel back in Lane's absence. It's quite possible Lane misses all of 2015.
