The San Francisco 49ers are hosting the Minnesota Vikings in their third preseason game of 2013, and they will be without one of their potential starting wide receivers. The 49ers are holding back Kyle Williams for the third straight game.
Williams returned from a torn ACL for the start of training camp, but he suffered a hamstring strain early on. He missed a week of practice, and while he has been back practicing, the team has kept him out of their preseason games. From his twitter account, it seems like Kyle Williams is chomping at the bit to get back on the field. This is not exactly shocking.
It will be interesting to see what happens when Williams gets back on the field. The 49ers have given Colin Kaepernick limited snaps, so they would seem to not be overly concerned with rust or any chemistry issues. The 49ers have plenty of question marks at wide receiver, so we'll see if Williams gets any snaps in the preseason finale this Thursday.
