More bad news from an injury standpoint for the Niners, as return man Kyle Williams is going to miss several weeks with a sprained toe.
Just when the 49ers seemed to solve their return woes, their big-play plans must be temporarily placed on the shelf. Rookie returner Kyle Williams will miss “several weeks” with a sprained big toe, coach Mike Singletary said one day after Sunday’s 37-27 exhibition victory at Indianapolis. That doesn’t mean Williams will be back in several weeks; merely that he will be re-evaluated at that point. Until then, Ted Ginn Jr. is the front-runner on both kickoff and punt returns. Williams was injured on a 36-yard punt return against the Colts – double any distance recorded by the 49ers last season.
