Lane was arrested Sunday near Seattle on a DUI charge, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
There aren't any further details surrounding Lane's arrest, other than he was released from jail four hours after being booked. The 27-year-old has spent all six of his NFL seasons with the Seahawks, but was nearly dealt to the Texans in October before a failed physical kept him in Seattle. Lane's diminished effectiveness cost him playing time late in the season, and the offseason DUI arrest certainly won't help his standing in the organization.
Lane (knee) is active for Sunday's contest at San Francisco.
The Seahawks secondary has been a patchwork effort of late, with Richard Sherman (Achilles) out for the season, Kam Chancellor (neck) out indefinitely and rookie Shaquill Griffin (concussion) out in the short term. Along with Lane, head coach Pete Carroll will trust in Byron Maxwell, a previous member of the Legion of Boom, to man the cornerback spots.
Lane (knee), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, is expected to start in the contest, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that all nine players Seattle is listing as questionable for Week 12 should play, including Lane, who was promoted to a starting role in the Week 11 loss to the Falcons with Richard Sherman (Achilles) out for the season. The Seahawks also lost their other starting cornerback, Shaquil Griffin, to a concussion early against the Falcons, so Lane will be joined in the starting lineup by the newly signed Byron Maxwell on Sunday.
With Shaquill Griffin (concussion) and Richard Sherman (Achilles) sitting out, Lane is slated to be the Seahawks' top cornerback if he's healthy. In his first game without Sherman, he posted a season-high seven tackles (two solo).
Lane is set to start at cornerback going forward, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
Weeks after returning to the Seahawks after a rescinded trade due to a failed physical, Lane will now be the starting left corner back in place of the injured Richard Sherman. Justin Coleman was another candidate for the role, but will instead remain the nickelback. The 27-year-old recorded two tackles in his return to action last week.
