All indications are Willis will be fine


Yes, 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis has a slight fracture in his right hand.  No, it’s not a concern for the team or the player.

Per a league source, all current indications are that Willis will be fine, despite the reported discovery of a fracture in his hand during Thursday X-rays.  Willis injured the hand on Wednesday, during practice.

“Fine” may not mean “able to play in the preseason,” but that’s not a huge blow.  Especially since it ensures Willis won’t get injured in any meaningless games.
