Seattle Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane was the only player on the team to get injured, but it is expected to keep him out for an extended period of time.
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane, who started out as the team’s new nickel corner following Walter Thurmond’s departure, endured a groin injury in the season opener against the Green Bay Packers.
His injury occurred when starting cornerback Byron Maxwell came up with an interception that set up a Steven Hauschka field goal.
Lane was expected to become a key part of the Seahawks defense, but this will apparently have to wait a while.
According to the Seahawks’ official Twitter account, Lane will need a while to recover from his groin injury.
Carroll said the only injury last night was to Jeremy Lane (groin) who will be out “a while”.
