Veteri was running toward Seattle's sideline at the end of Nate Burleson's 20-yard punt return midway through the quarter when Laury was blocked, falling directly into Veteri's leg, buckling him to the ground.
Veteri was attended to by Seahawks' staff before being helped off the field. Veteri is in his 16th year as an official.
Alternate official Rob Vernatchi, in his fourth year, replaced Veteri.
