"It should be OK, it shouldn't be a big problem going forward," Carroll said. "There's concern there could be some complications when you have something like that."
Carroll later Tuesday told reporters that Lockett will spend another night at the hospital as a precaution. However, the injury shouldn't be a problem for Lockett in the future and the receiver should be available to play in Seattle's next game in Week 12, Carroll added.
NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Tuesday on NFL NOW that Lockett did not need to undergo surgery, and his injury was a "very bad bruise" that swelled a lot.
Carroll had talked about how serious the injury appeared to be for Lockett, but mentioned it was good that the Seahawks' medical staff appeared to have gotten ahead of whatever issue was plaguing Lockett. Less than 24 hours later, the prognosis is even brighter, with Carroll mentioning how fortunate the Seahawks are to have a bye this week.
