The 49ers have not officially commented on the injury, but Jim Harbaugh is scheduled to speak to the media today around 4:00 p.m. PT. Perhaps the head coach will share an update on Willis’ health.

Prior to the injury, defensive coordinator Vic Fangio raved about Willis’ development entering year seven of his career.
“He’s got elite talent and he’s an elite person and worker,” Fangio said. “I just think he’s become a better player overall. I think he has a better understanding of the game now. I think he accepts challenges. He knows we rely on him and put him in some tough positions and he cherishes that and relishes in it. I just think he’s become a much better mental football player than he was earlier in his career.”
