Avril joined nickel back Jeremy Lane on the Seahawks' injury report. Lane made the first big play of Super Bowl XLIX, intercepting a Tom Brady pass in Seattle's end zone in the first quarter. He suffered an arm injury at the end of the play, resulting in an arm cast and a cart ride to the locker room.
Lane also did not return.
The interception was Lane's first in his career. The fifth member of Seattle's notable secondary, Lane became the fourth Seattle defensive back to suffer an injury in the last two weeks. Safety Earl Thomas (shoulder), cornerback Richard Sherman (elbow) and safety Kam Chancellor (knee) all played with injuries.
