Man, Kendall has an achilles tear. Those are tough to come back from. Wish him the best of luck.
Suggs came back from his achilles tear in a decent timeframe and has been playing okay. Even though he is a douche
Keep in mind...even though he had surgery, Suggs only had a partial tear (according to ESPN).
According to this medical article from 2010, the prognosis of an Achilles rupture for NFL "skilled" players were not as encouraging.
Of the 31 players who sustained an Achilles tendon rupture, 21 (64%) returned to play in the NFL at an average of 11 months after injury. In the three seasons following their return, those 21 players saw significant decreases in games played and power ratings compared to the three seasons preceding the injury.
...nearly 36% of affected players never return to playing at the NFL level.

Matt Barrows ‏@mattbarrows It's official: Kendall Hunter and Kyle Williams to go on IR; Jewel Hampton has been activated. 49ers sticking with 52 players for now
9 months until we really need them
They can be a luxury if Jenkins and James pan out.
If the thoughts of James being a change of pace guy are true, Hunter is not a luxury.....he's the better work horse.
dam kw and Hunter gone for the year it would happen against the f**king saints go figure. I really like Hunter alot he is so explosive, every time he touched the rock it seemed like he was going to break a big gain. Well everyone's been clamoring to see what our rooks can do guess we finally get to see what they are made of now.
Did Vilma take out both players on the same play like the announcers had said? Shouldn't that fool be in suspension? It's crazy that a guy who shouldn't be on the field because of his attitude towards injuring other teams players, put two guys out on the same play with significant, career threatening injuries. I know it was inadvertent, but still, crazy.
