San Francisco 49ers Put Williams On Injured Reserve

It's been a tough week in football injuries. 
San Francisco 49ers starting defensive tackle Ian Williams was placed on the injured reserve after sustaining a broken ankle.
Williams received the injury when he was bring cut blocked by  J. R. Sweezy midway through the first quarter of Sunday's 29-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. 

Williams' left ankle was caught underneath as Sweezy made the block on a two yard run by Marshawn Lynch. Williams was down on the field for several minutes before being helped off the field by trainers. He was putting very little weight on his left leg. 
Williams was replaced in the game by Glenn Dorsey, who sacked Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson on the next series. 
49ers lineback Patrick Willis has come forward and asked the NFL to evaluate its stance on cut blocks.
"I feel like, as a linebacker or a D-lineman, any cut- it's a man sport, be a man, hit me up high," Willis told "Hit like rams. You don't see a ram going and cutting another ram's legs. They hit head to head, pad to pad."
Fullback Owen Marecic replaced Williams on the team. Marecic was a former fourth round pick of the Cleveland Browns and was cut this summer after two seasons playing there.
