Willis misses another practice; T.O. back from flu

Linebacker Patrick Willis missed his second day of practice this week, this time because he was feeling under the weather. Willis missed Wednesday's session with a hip strain. Neither issue, coach Mike Singletary said, will keep the middle linebacker out of Sunday's game against Dallas. "He's got a little nick here and a little nick there," Singletary said. "... But he'll be OK."

Along with Willis, Josh Morgan, Dashon Goldson and Arnaz Battle all missed practice. All three don't figure to play against the Cowboys. Tarell Brown, Michael Robinson, Mark Roman and Delanie Walker were limited in practice. Barry Sims went through a full practice.

For the Cowboys, Terrell Owens was back in practice after missing Wednesday with flu-like symptoms. Rookie running back Felix Jones missed practice with a hamstring injury and is out for the year.
