Report: 49ers Lose RB Kendall Hunter For The Season

Mike Garafolo of USA Today reports that a source has informed him that 49ers RB Kendall Hunter will miss the rest of the 2012 season after he suffered a  left ankle injury during Sunday’s win over the Saints.

San Francisco also lost WR Kyle Williams for the season after he torn his ACL during the game.

Frank Gore figures to see an increased workload in the coming weeks, but Brandon Jacobs, who has been inactive for nearly the entire season, should also see more carries. It will be interesting to see if the 49ers work rookie LaMichael James into the mix, considering that he resembles Hunter’s skill set better than the other two backs.
