RENTON, Wash.  - The celebration of an NFC West title was put on hold for the Seattle Seahawks.

And unless they get some help, the delay could be for at least another two weeks.

Seattle's 19-17 loss to San Francisco on Sunday was the Seahawks first setback in more than two months.

It snapped a seven-game win streak and left Seattle still needing two more wins _ or a win and a 49ers loss _ to clinch the division title.

The loss also came with an injury cost. Outside linebacker K.J. Wright suffered a fractured bone in his foot and is scheduled to have surgery on Tuesday.

The initial prognosis is that Wright will miss 4 to 6 weeks. Carroll says center Max Unger, who suffered a strained pectoral, will be limited in practice this week but hopes he'll be able to play Sunday.
