Recently released Seahawks long-snapper Bryan Pittman injured a finger on his right hand while moving his belongings into his Seattle residence, his agent said.

Agent Kevin Gold said Pittman plans to remain in the Seattle area while trying to hook on with another team or possibly get a second chance with the Seahawks, depending on how their snapping situation unfolds.

According to Gold, Pittman could be ready in another couple of weeks. The Seattle snapping job is now Kevin Houser's to lose after the former Saints long-snapper signed with the Seahawks.

The best long-snapper in the division -- Brian Jennings of the 49ers -- is one of two NFC West snapping holdovers from last season. The 49ers recently extended Jennings' deal through 2014.
