Jeremy Lane was activated from the reserve PUP list Saturday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.
Lane tore his ACL and suffered a gruesome arm fracture during last year's Super Bowl -- injuries that combined to keep him off the Seattle Seahawks ' active roster until Saturday. The 25-year-old will likely take over as the nickel cornerback quickly, but he could become the starter opposite Richard Sherman in the coming weeks if Cary Williams continues to struggle.
Lane is trying to recover from a compound wrist fracture and ligament tear in his knee, which he suffered in the Super Bowl. He is unlikely to be healthy enough to participate when training camp opens.
Lane suffered a compound wrist fracture and a knee-ligament tear in the game.
“That’s a long process to get back,’’ Carroll said, via ESPN.com. “It’s about how he handles the final stages of it.”
There isn't a set timetable for Lane's recovery at this time. He finished the 2014 regular season with 13 tackles, one forced fumble and three pass deflections.
Lane suffered a broken arm on an interception return in the first quarter of Seattle's Super Bowl loss against New England. Lane torn his ACL on the same play, the Seattle Times reports.
Lane spent the first half of the 2014 season on injured reserve with a groin injury. He was limited to seven games, registering 13 tackles and one fumble recovery.
