Seahawks activate CB Jeremy Lane and place C Stephen Schilling on IR

The Seahawks made an expected move today in activating cornerback Jeremy Lane from the short-term Injured Reserve list, meaning he will be eligible to play Sunday against the New York Giants.

Seattle made room for Lane on the 53-man roster by placing center Stephen Schilling on Injured Reserve, meaning his season is over (the short-term IR can only be used once in a season).

Lane was placed on IR with the designation to return following the season opener against Green Bay, suffering from a groin injury. This was the first week he was eligible to return. He has been deemed healthy and expected to play Sunday, and likely to be the starting nickelback with Marcus Burley listed as questionable with a hamstring injury.

Placing Schilling on IR leaves Seattle with nine offensive linemen on the 53-man roster, one of whom — James Carpenter — is also questionable to play ┬áSunday with an ankle injury.It also makes Patrick Lewis the backup center for now.

However, as has been speculated, the Seahawks could re-sign former backup center Lemuel Jeanpierre in two weeks. Jeanpierre was waived in September with an injury settlement, the rules of which mean he could not re-sign with the Seahawks until the 12th week of the season.

Jeanpierre, who had a neck/shoulder injury at the time, is healthy and has had workouts with several teams in recent weeks, including the Browns and Dolphins (he also just had his high school number retired).

For Sunday, though, the Seahawks will have starter Max Unger back at center and Lewis as the backup. (Drew Nowak, a member of the practice squad, also plays center).

Schilling, a former Bellevue High standout, ends his first season with his hometown team having started three games in place of Unger.
