49ers DT Williams suffered broken ankle

San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Ian Williams will miss at least six weeks with a broken ankle. Williams was injured in the first quarter Sunday night at Seattle on a legal cut block that infuriated coach Jim Harbaugh and Williams' teammates.

"I feel like that's something the league should look into more," said linebacker Patrick Willis. "You see some of that stuff, and it's uncalled for. You have a guy who's 300 pounds cutting a guy who's 250 pounds. Do physics to that. Hit the man up high. It should be a good collision."

Williams was making his first career start. He was replaced by sixth-year veteran Glenn Dorsey, a former first-round pick of the Kansas City Chiefs in his first season with the 49ers.

Willis believes the NFL should force blockers to hit up high "like rams. You don't see a ram going and cutting another ram's legs."

"You're not talking about a concussion and being out for two weeks," Willis said. "You're talking about being down for the rest of the season if you get hit good like that."
