SEATTLE (AP) — Already battered and emotionally spent, looking at one last chance to stay in the NFC West race, the Seattle Seahawks went into the locker room and absorbed another blow.

They are set to be without Tyler Lockett, one of their top wide receivers, indefinitely with a broken bone in his hand.

“Just add to the night,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said.

Seattle’s 21-13 loss to San Francisco on Thursday night was bad enough. It was the fourth loss in five games for Seattle (7-7) and clinched the NFC West title for the 49ers. It was the second time in four seasons that San Francisco wrapped up the division on the Seahawks’ home field.

But the news after that was a gut punch. Lockett was injured on Seattle’s final possession. Lockett was hit hard and appeared to fall awkwardly on an incomplete pass with 3:47 left.

“The index finger, right here, you know. It’s legal and all that,” Carroll said. “We’ve got to figure out what’s the right way. I can’t even fathom it playing without Tyler.
