Quote :
The San Francisco 49ers fear MLB Patrick Willis (hand) has a slight fracture in his right hand. He'll undergo an X-ray Thursday, Aug. 1.

That could suck.  

Although he has proven to be pretty resilient.

Quote :
Patrick Willis is headed for X-rays after sustaining a right hand injury during Wednesday's practice. Analysis: The injury happened when Willis collided with fullback Britt Miller during a blitz pickup drill. The need for X-rays says the Niners fear he sustained a small fracture. Note that Willis broke his right hand in 2007 and didn't miss any games while playing with a cast on his hand. He broke the same hand yet again in 2010 and played two full games with it before bowing out of a meaningless season finale.

Willis (groin) did not practice Monday, the Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows reports. Analysis: No surprise here, as the 49ers' All-World inside linebacker is not expected to suit up for Thursday's game against the Rams. Willis left Sunday's loss to the Colts with a groin injury and was unable to return.
That sucks for the 9'ers.

49ers placed ILB Patrick Willis on injured reserve with a toe injury, ending his season.

Willis has been sidelined since Week 6, and it's now been determined that he needs surgery. He's the top all-around linebacker in the game, excelling both in coverage and against the run. Rookie Chris Borland, a tackle machine, will fill in. Fellow injured ILB Navorro Bowman revealed this week that he's also still feeling pain in his surgically-repaired knee. It'll be Borland and Michael Wilhoite.

Another major LB down...

Just in time for Bowman to make his triumphant return?

Rumors swirling about him announcing his retirement. That'd be another legend down.

Well on the bright side at least they don't have to figure out how to get all the ILBs on the field at the same time...

Sorry to see you got Patrick

Supposedly it's due to a "religious awakening" if you believe the rumors.

Well, it's official.

Quote :
The San Francisco 49ers announced Tuesday that LB Patrick Willis, a six-time All-Pro and seven-time Pro Bowl selection, plans to retire from the National Football League.

Willis will be speaking to the media on Tuesday, March 10 at 12 noon PT. His press conference will be streaming on 49ers.com/live and the 49ers mobile app.

“On behalf of the entire San Francisco 49ers organization, my family, and our Faithful fans, I would like to thank Patrick for everything he has brought to this team and our community,” said 49ers CEO Jed York. “Some of the greatest memories in the history of our franchise have come from his passion, dedication and sacrifice.

“Patrick epitomizes everything you could ever want in a San Francisco 49er. What he brought to this team goes much further than his athletic abilities. His leadership and infectious love for the game helped propel this team. I consider myself very lucky to have grown up around some of the greatest players in the history of this franchise, and Patrick has certainly secured his place among that elite group of men. As a member of our family, Patrick holds a special place in our hearts, and we look forward to supporting him as he moves on from his playing career.”

Originally drafted by San Francisco in the first round (the 11th overall selection) of the 2007 NFL Draft, Willis spent all eight seasons of his NFL playing career with the 49ers. Since being named NFL

Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2007, he has been one of the league’s most dominant linebackers. Willis became the first player in 49ers history to be selected as an All-Pro in each of his first six seasons (First Team - 2007, 2009-12; Second Team - 2008).

A seven-time Pro Bowl selection, Willis was the first 49er since S Ronnie Lott to be selected to the Pro Bowl in each of his first four seasons. He also became the first player in franchise history to be selected to the Pro Bowl in each of his first seven seasons. Willis joined LB Lawrence Taylor and LB Derrick Thomas as the only defensive players, since the merger in 1970, to be selected to the Pro Bowl in each of their first seven seasons.

A two-time recipient of the Bill Walsh Award, which is voted on by the coaches and awarded to the team’s Most Valuable Player, Willis has earned the respect of the men he has played alongside and against. Along with DT Justin Smith and RB Frank Gore, the three are the only two-time winners of the award in team history.

Willis started all 112 games in which he appeared and registered 1,225 tackles, 20.5 sacks, eight interceptions (returning two for touchdowns), 16 forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries and 53 passes defensed. Since 2007, he is the only player in the NFL with at least 20.0 sacks (20.5), 15 forced fumbles (16) and eight interceptions (eight). Willis also started all eight playoff games and registered 84 tackles, 2.0 sacks, one interception, one fumble recovery and two passes defensed.

A 30-year-old native of Bruceton, TN, Willis played collegiately at Mississippi where he won the 2006 Butkus Award and Jack Lambert Award as the nation’s top linebacker. A two-time All-America selection (2005-06), Willis was also named the 2006 SEC Defensive Player of the Year.

Agree. I think it will be weird at first to see the SF defense without him out there.
