Officer Ryan Hoirup, 28, underwent surgery Monday to mend multiple fractures to his pelvis, police spokeswoman Shannon Sessions said.
During Sunday's struggle, he and the suspect fell down an 18-foot embankment.
"While Officer Hoirup will have a long road to recovery, we are thankful that his condition isn't more dire," Sessions said.
Hoirup was involved in a police chase Sunday evening along 196th Street SW.
Officers were after a man wanted on a felony arrest warrant who had run from a traffic stop.
The suspect suffered a broken wrist in the fall. He was arrested and booked for investigation of second-degree assault.
Hoirup is a five-year veteran of the department. Lynnwood police are grateful for all the warm wishes from the community for Hoirup and his family, Sessions said.
