Source: Patrick Willis likely out for Sunday at Cardinals

Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports that 49ers Pro Bowl linebacker Patrick Willis will probably miss Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Willis, a five-year veteran out of Mississippi, missed the first game of his career in the 2010 season finale with a broken hand.

Willis’ replacement: Larry Grant filled in admirably for Willis last Sunday, generating six tackles (five solo, one for loss), and a sack against St. Louis.

More on Grant: The six-foot-one, 251-pound Ohio State product is in his fourth year.  He is a hometown kid, who attended City College of San Francisco, and was named JUCO National Player of the Year in 2005.
