The San Francisco 49ers could be without running back Kendall Hunter and wide receiver Kyle Williams for an extended period of time, as both players were injured in the team's 31-21 win over the New Orleans Saints last Sunday. Hunter and Williams are scheduled to undergo MRI examinations on Monday, according to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com.
Hunter, who has been productive as a backup to running back Frank Gore, sprained his left ankle and was on crutches and wearing an orthopedic boot following the injury.
Williams, a third-year pro out of Arizona State, suffered a significant injury to his left knee was was immediately ruled out of the game. The 24-year-old's injury is feared to be the more serious of the two.
The 49ers will head to St. Louis to take on the Rams in Week 13. Kickoff is scheduled for 10 a.m. PT at the Edward Jones Dome and the game will be televised on Fox.
