Williams likely will be placed on injured reserve, making him unavailable for at least the 49ers’ next three games.
#49ers injury updates:— Jennifer Lee Chan (@jenniferleechan) October 5, 2020
DE Ziggy Ansah has a torn bicep and will be out for the remainder of the season.
DB K’Waun Williams has a knee sprain and will miss a few weeks
CB Jason Verrett has a hand injury should be fine
WR Dante Pettis should be back Wed
Williams left in the fourth quarter of Sunday night's loss at Levi's Stadium and did not return. He already was banged-up entering the game, as he was listed as questionable with a hip issue for Week 4.
Jamar Taylor replaced Williams as the slot cornerback, and Taylor practiced with the 49ers during training camp while Williams dealt with a calf issue.
But as has become the de facto mantra in this seemingly endless wave of injuries early in the season, it remains next man up for Robert Saleh's defense.
