Patrick Willis is expected to be a game-time decision

According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee,  49ers linebacker Patrick Willis is expected to be a game-time decision this Sunday,  after missing last week’s game with a groin injury.

Willis, who suffered a groin injury Sept. 22 against Indianapolis, said he was making progress but that he was still sore and fighting through the pain of his injury. Look for him to be listed as questionable Friday and to be a game-time decision Sunday.

The 49ers could certainly use Willis as they get ready to face running back Arian Foster and the Texans.
