Jefferson, a 2016 fifth-round pick by Seattle, took the roster spot that became open when the Seahawks placed running back Chris Carson on injured reserve, an expected move after he injured his ankle and also suffered a fracture in his leg against the Colts.
The other major injury concern is defensive end Cliff Avril, who was inadvertently kicked in the chin trying to make a tackle from behind and suffered a neck injury.
"There's an outside chance", Carroll said. "There are going to be some tests and stuff like that".
"We are going to be really careful there to make sure we know exactly what is going on and take our time".
The Seahawks, though, were more concerned about making sure they had enough players at tailback to navigate a 16-game season in the wake of a rugged 2016 campaign in which injuries meant Seattle had to use 18 different ballcarriers, the most of any National Football League team since the 1987 strike year. "He's got a bruised sternum and he's fine in all ways". Seattle will sign defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.
Odhiambo was injured when he took a hit to the chest on an interception return in the third quarter. Odhiambo had breathing problems after the game and was tended to by medics in the locker room. "All the adrenaline wasn't pumping and all".
"It was uncomfortable to not have Eddie up (for the 49ers game)", Carroll said. "It was a really good effort by him to hang tough and play a really good football game like that". The carries against the Colts were the first for Lacy since the season opener when he had just three yards on five carries against Green Bay. Seattle is hopeful RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) will be able to play against the Rams after being inactive last week.
