Without James, Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter will split carries in the backfield, with Anthony Dixon possibly being in line for some action. It's likely that wide receiver Kyle Williams will return punts with James sidelined. Williams, who was listed as the team's backup punt returner on the team's unofficial preseason depth chart, averaged 13.0 yards on four returns when Ted Ginn missed the first three games of 2012.
