Kyle Williams tears ACL, out for the season. Who will step up?

Monday morning on Twitter, Kyle Williams confirmed he tore his ACL Sunday against the Saints and will miss the rest of the season as he rehabs.

Kendall Hunter hurt his ankle on the same play, but the extent of his injury is currently unknown.

Due to these injuries, first and second round picks A.J. Jenkins and LaMichael James may be activated next week against the Rams, but I do not expect either guy to play. Jenkins is the No.4 wide receiver on the depth chart, and LaMichael James is the No.5 running back on the depth chart.

Also, neither guy is in football shape, because they haven’t been taking hits.

I expect Randy Moss to get more playing time at wide receiver, and I expect Anthony Dixon to get more playing time at running back. Dixon fits the 49ers slashing running style.

Brandon Jacobs does not. He’s a slam back. I do not understand why they signed him in the first place.
