Photo: Jeremy Lane's Super Bowl injury in all its gruesome glory

Jeremy Lane had quite an eventful 15 seconds or so in the first quarter of tonight's Super Bowl.

The Seattle Seahawks corner made the first big play of the game - intercepting Tom Brady in the end zone to keep the scores tied at 0-0.

But as the corner returned the ball he was knocked down by the Patriots' Julian Edelman.

Reaching out to brace himself for the impact, Lane's outstretched arm buckled under the weight of his body and resulted in this rather ugly scene.

Jeremy Lane was taken for treatment immediately after the incident and has since been ruled out of returning to the action. An unsurprising development considering the gruesome nature of the picture above.

Arms simply aren't suppose to bend that way.

Key player missing

Without Lane the usually water-tight Seattle Seahawks secondary has looked more vulnerable than usual as Tom Brady and the Patriots look to find an edge.

The point was clear when Brady found ROb Gronkowski for a touchdown during the second quarter. Gronk was being covered by a linebacker as he made the catch - hardly a fair fight.

At time of writing the game is tied at 14-14 heading into the third quarter. With Lane out for the remainder of the game he, and the Seahawks, will be hoping that they can outlast the Patriots to secure their second successive Super Bowl win.

If they lose out that will only add insult to a pretty rough looking injury for the cornerback.
