The good news for the 49ers is that, per a league source, 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis feels fine after injuring his right hand during practice on Wednesday. The bad news is that Willis nevertheless may have a “slight fracture” in his hand.
Willis will have an X-ray on Thursday, a development first reported by Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com.
As Maiocco explains, Willis has suffered two fractures in his hand during his NFL career.
Linebacker NaVorro Bowman also missed a portion of Wednesday’s practice after sustaining a groin strain on Tuesday.
