"He is in the dressing room now.
"A bang on the hip, it might not be as severe as we first thought," Lampard said.
Abraham was on the ground for a long time before he was being attended to and was replaced at half time with Mitchy Batshuayi.
The Blues striker was in pain and distress as he was quickly wrapped in blankets and it is understood that he was immediately taken to the hospital.
Chelsea must have to win their last group game against Lille at Stamford Bridge to secure their passage into the round of 16.
But Lampard was not happy with his team's performance after missing a couple of clear chances which could have buried the game.
Lampard said: "It’s a positive that it is now in our hands. We both had incredible chances.
"We had numerous ones in the first half. I don’t feel fortunate. I didn’t love the match.
"It can happen in football. It is about if you can get through the game."
