Just when things were starting to turn around for the 49ers defense, reports are coming out that Patrick Willis will undergo surgery on his toe, thus ending his season.
Earlier today news came out that Aldon Smith returned to practice. Reports yesterday mentioned that NaVorro Bowman would have an MRI done to see if he could start practicing and it was looking more and more like Glenn Dorsey would return soon and now the Willis news.
Damn. Thank god Chris Borland is playing his ass off.
