San Francisco 49ers Pro Bowl linebacker Patrick Willis has had a relatively healthy career, though, he has had lingering hand issues since his days at the University of Mississippi.
That lingering issue recently re-appeared as Willis suffered a broken hand last week and now according to Mike Sando of ESPN, will need to undergo hand surgery. Thankfully, the procedure is expected to be relatively minor and Willis will be sidelined for just a few weeks and it shouldn’t hamper his status for the season opener.
