Super Bowl 49 didn’t go well for the Seattle Seahawks, but for one Seahawks player, the result of the game was just adding salt to the wound.

Jeremy Lane was well on his way to having a terrific Super Bowl performance after intercepting a throw from Tom Brady of the New England Patriots in the first quarter.

However, on the interception return, he was tackled and suffered a gruesome arm injury that would put him out of action for months.

That alone would’ve been a terrible experience, but things only went downhill from there. Due to the nature of the injury, Lane required immediate surgery at a nearby hospital.

And then this happened:

“I woke up we were on the 1-yard line. Enough said,” Lane told reporters on Wednesday, via CBS Sports.

He was, of course, recounting the now infamous play in which the Seahawks threw an interception, costing them the game and a second NFL championship.

Lane went on to state that he thought it was a bad dream and went back to sleep. He would find out the next day that his "dream" wasn't a dream at all, but all too real. 

To continue the horror story, Lane would find out a month later that he tore his ACL on that very same play, when his knee suddenly gave out in a Seattle area grocery store, requiring further surgery.

But wait, there’s more

Lane’s injured arm experienced further complications, resulting in a second surgery in the springtime to deal with an infection.

Talk about a brutal game. 

The good news is that Jeremy Lane practiced this week for the first time this season according to Gregg Bell of the News Tribune, and looks ready and healthy to contribute.

Regardless if you are a Seahawks fan or not, you can’t help but feel for the guy.

What do you think? Is Lane’s the worst Super Bowl story ever?
