Yeah feel bad for him. Undrafted FA; had a great training camp; beats out Doresey; and then gets his ankle broken in his first career NFL start.
We definitely ran this risk when we drafted two injured players. Ideally, Tank and/or Dial would be able to rotate in, maybe slide RayMac to NT/DT to give Dorsey a blow. But we can't do that until they're healthy.

To be honest, wasn't crazy about Ian Willams. Wish we were able to get more push up the middle to collapse the pocket.
Glenn played really well last night, he finally got playing time an showed his stuff. The Niners D played on an extremely short field all night. Dorsey played really well and even gave us some pass rush which really isnt his strength. I am sick over losing Williams for quality depth, but Ive always thought Dorsey was an upgrade. He is an extreme talent. Williams had the advantage of being in the system. Fangio even said it himself, Dorsey was still learning the nuiances of the D. We are def lacking some depth now.
I'm a little more nervous Reid is going to miss more then 1 game, the secondary is the weak link as is on D.

agreed, I wish we could have got Hankins this year.

But anyway, I feel bad for Ian, he will be missed.
who is going to replace him?

This. Honestly I have loved Dorsey since preseason. I really hope he can step it up. I have no doubt he can clog the middle but I want to see some sacks. He delivered last night. That has to be the 1st NT sack I've seen in like a year.
Could look at some free agents ..some interesting names out there like Marvin Austin NYG, Antonio Dixon PHI, Sealver Siliga SEA practice squad and Alameda Ta'amu PIT..
just get the biggest, fattest b*****d available.

Depending on health, Antonio Dixon would be the best bet, I heard he was a pretty decent run stopper in Philly. I guess he wasn't needed once they signed Sopoaga.
