Jefferson will undergo surgery in the near future to repair the Jones fracture he suffered in last weekend's divisional-round loss to the Packers, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Jefferson's injury will require eight weeks of recovery, so he'll be healthy just in time for free agency in March. The Seahawks would like to retain Jefferson if the price is right, as the 26-year-old proved effective in a utility role in 2019, lining up at defensive tackle but also working as an edge rusher. He finished the regular season with a career-high 26 tackles to go with 3.5 sacks, and he added two more sacks in the wild-card win over the Eagles. His potential role for Seattle in 2020 would likely depend on whether the team retains Jadeveon Clowney (core).
