I agree it's cutting it close. I always planned on 1.5 lbs per person for TG (BH&G guide)

That was per my ratty worn old BH&G clipped out guide (link says same). If you go heavy on the sides and serve appetizers too you should be fine, after all this is TG...nobody is going hungry, but don't plan on leftovers.

With 1.5 lbs per person (prior to roasting) I rarely had much leftover, though we have big turkey eaters around here. Also in CA (but not LA) ::hanging head in turkey big eater shame::

PS
If you really are thinking about adding a breast or legs I'd first see if you could just return the bird for a bigger one to make things easier.
