Patrick Willis was a full participant in practice Thursday for the second straight day. Willis left the 49ers last game against the Vikings in the fourth quarter with what was later diagnosed as an ankle sprain. Barring a late week setback, it appears Willis will play against the Jets.
The news wasn't quite as good for starting nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga who did not practice for the second straight day. Sopoaga, who suffered a knee and ankle injury against the Vikings, is yet to practice this week. If Sopoaga is unable to play, Ricky Jean-Francois is likely to fill in.
