Report: Hunter out for the season with ankle injury

Kendall Hunter will miss the rest of the season due the left ankle injury he sustained against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, according to USA Today.

Update: Hunter tore his left Achilles according to Matt Barrows.

How big of a blow is this for the 49ers. How much does it affect their Super Bowl odds?

Brandon Jacobs, Anthony Dixon and LaMichael James will have the opportunity to step up and become Frank Gore’s backup for the playoff run. Who do you think will seize the opportunity?
