Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane among those inactive against 49ers; and Jeanpierre officially to start at center

Seattle’s list of inactive players for Thursday night’s game at San Francisco included cornerback Jeremy Lane, the team’s starting nickel back.

Lane was on IR earlier this season due to a groin injury but now is battling a gluteus injury — he had been listed as questionable for the game after being limited in practice this week.

The other inactives for Seattle are linebackers Kevin Pierre-Louis and Allen Bradford, center Max Unger, defensive tackle Travian Robertson and tight ends Cooper Helfet and RaShaun Allen.

Pierre-Louis has a shoulder injury, Unger is out 2-3 weeks with ankle and knee injuries and Helfet is out with a sprained ankle. The others are healthy scratches.

Able to play this week is cornerback Marcus Burley, who missed the last two games with a hamstring injury. Seattle could also use Tharold Simon as an outside corner and move Byron Maxwell inside to play the slot, something it did last week against the Cardinals.

Also, what was assumed was officially announced in the press box — that Lemuel Jeanpierre will start at center in place of Patrick Lewis. He will be the fourth different starting center for Seattle this season, which is an offshoot of injuries to Unger.

And James Carpenter is listed as the starter at left guard after missing the last three games with a sprained ankle. Alvin Bailey started in Carpenter’s place.

Inactive for the 49ers are QB Josh Johnson, WRs Bruce Ellington and Quinton Patton, CB Tramaine Brock, OT Anthony Davis, TE Vance McDonald and DL Glenn Dorsey.
