PFT on NBCSN: Patrick Willis, Coaching hot seat, Power rankings


The 49ers cruised to a 35-11 win over the Rams last week without linebacker Patrick Willis and we’ll find out how his groin injury is faring on Tuesday’s edition of Pro Football Talk on NBCSN.

Willis will join the crew to discuss his injury and his outlook for Sunday night’s home date with the Texans. We’ll also find out from Willis how the 49ers have been coping with the loss of key players like Aldon Smith and Michael Crabtree while they try to mount a defense of their NFC title this season.

49ers coach Jim Harbaugh is not on the hot seat, but we’ll also be taking a look at which coaches might not be in such secure situations after the first four weeks of the regular season. This week’s edition of the power rankings will also be up for discussion, although there won’t be much time spent on the first or last spots since the Broncos and Jaguars have shown no signs of vacating them so far this season.

It all gets started at 5:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
