When San Francisco 49ers ILB Patrick Willis injured his toe during the second-quarter of the St. Louis Rams Monday Night game, many Forever Faithful were holding their breathe hoping he would be fine. Well as it turns out, he will be back in time for the St. Louis Rams re-match on November 2nd.

A question that CSN Bay Area and 49ers Insider Matt Maiocco asked after today’s practice, Willis said, “Yes sir, I really do, but I don’t want to jinx it. All I can say is each day, I feel a little bit better.”
