49ers waive NT Ian Williams off reserve/NFI list

Oct 27, 2016 at 3:26 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have waived NT Ian Williams off of the reserve/non-football injury list, per multiple sources. Williams was placed on the injury list on July 30.

Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports that the move does not prevent the 49ers from re-signing Williams down the road. The absense of Williams certainly contributed to the team's poor run defense this season.



In March, Williams, who was about to become a free agent, agreed to a new five-year contract with the 49ers. That contract was believed to pay Williams between $5 and $6 million per year. However, when his availability for the 49ers' season opener in September came into question, that contract was replaced by a one-year deal.

Following a physical, it was determined that Williams' rehab from surgery on his left leg would require more time than originally believed. Prior to the extent of the injury becoming better known, Williams was considered one of the top interior defender free agents.

Williams missed 21 of 32 games from in 2013 and 2014 because of a leg fracture in each of the two seasons. He became a starter in 2014, but the fractured leg ended his season after nine games. He started all 16 games for the 49ers in 2015 and underwent a follow-up procedure upon completion of the season.

Williams joined the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame in 2011.

The San Francisco 49ers are hoping to get linebacker Kwon Alexander back this season. How soon that will happen remains unclear, but head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters on Friday that the team isn't talking injured reserve just yet. "We don't think [injured reserve is a possibility] right now," Shanahan said. "I never like to say 'minor high-ankle sprain' because high-ankle sprains are always a big issue, but it wasn't your typical one where they for sure go on IR. That's why we haven't put him on that yet, and we're hoping to keep him off." Shanahan also provided an update on Richard Sherman, who has been sidelined with a calf injury since Week 1. The 49ers had hoped to get him back this past weekend, but the cornerback had a setback last
