Willis breaks bone in hand

Patrick Willis, who played most of his senior season at Ole Miss with a cast on his right hand, may have to do the same this season. Willis said he hurt his right hand on the 49ers' second defensive series. X-rays taken after the game showed a break on one of the small bones of his hand. Willis was wearing a black plastic cast as he left the locker room.
The injury is not likely to keep him out of action. After all, Willis didn't leave the game and led the 49ers -- again -- with 10 tackles.

He graduated in 1995, went to Northwestern for a journalism degree a year later, and got his first job at a South Carolina daily in 1997. He joined The Bee as a Metro reporter in 1999 and started covering the 49ers in 2003. His favorite player of all time is Darrell Green.
