SEATTLE — The Seahawks on Monday placed cornerback Jeremy Lane on the injured reserve/designated to return list and signed cornerback Josh Thomas to the 53-man active roster, the team announced Monday.
Lane, who was injured in the 36-16 win over the Green Bay Packers last week, will not be able to return to the active roster for eight weeks.
Thomas was originally drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the fifth-round (143rd overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft but was released after training camp and claimed off waivers by Carolina, where he spent the last three seasons. He played in 38 games with 10 starts for the Panthers, recording 64 tackles (49 solo), one interception and nine passes defensed.
Last season, Thomas played in 13 games with six starts, collecting 28 tackles (21 solo) and one interception. He was released this season after training camp on August 30.
Also on Monday, the Seahawks signed tackle Andrew McDonald to the 53-man active roster, the team announced Monday. They also signed guard Nate Isles and safety Terrance Parks to the practice squad, while releasing guard David Arkin and safety Josh Aubrey.
McDonald, 26, signed as an undrafted rookie free agent with the Miami Dolphins in 2012. He spent a season on the practice squad before moving to the Carolina Panthers for the 2013 season.
McDonald underwent surgery in May for testicular cancer, CBS sports reports.
