Kyle Williams injury update: 49ers WR has positive response to rehab


Williams is on the mend and feeling good as the rehab process goes along.

After tearing his ACL in late November of last year against the New Orleans Saints, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver/returner Kyle Williams is beginning to feel better as his rehabilitation progresses, running for the first time since his surgery. Don't believe me? Read his tweet.

Williams will be even more important this year to San Francisco now that Ted Ginn Jr. has left the building, signing with the Carolina Panthers. Williams will be leaned on to once again return kicks while evolving as a wide receiver for Colin Kaepernick as a deep threat.

Considering the injury took place in November, Williams should be back in time for training camp. The OTA's of May and June might be in question, but then again that's no big deal should Williams sit those out.

Ultimately, all that matters is him being ready for opening day on Sept. 8, which is unbelievably a little over five months away.
