Love all true fans your prayers are Kyle Williams (@KyleWilliams_10) November 26, 2012Williams sustained his season-ending injury while blocking against the New Orleans Saints on a play in which running back Kendall Hunter also sustained a right ankle sprain.Williams has been one of the great comeback stories for the 49ers this season. After two turnovers on punts in the NFC championship game loss to the New York Giants, Williams rebounded with a strong offseason to earn a prominent role with the team this season.Williams was used as a slot receiver when the 49ers went with three wide receivers.

Hunter is also expected to miss some time with a left ankle sprain. Injuries to Williams and Hunter could open the door for the 49ers' top two draft picks, receiver A.J. Jenkins and running back LaMichael James, to make their season debuts.
