02:03 PM ET 11.27 | Kendall Hunter's 2012 season is likely over after reports on Tuesday revealed that the ankle injury he suffered during the San Francisco 49ers' win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday is more serious than initially believed. Hunter was carted off the field at the same time as Kyle Williams (torn ACL). Hunter's ankle appeared to be tweaked by Jonathan Vilma at the end of a run. Hunter will likely finish the season with 371 yards rushing and two touchdowns off 72 carries playing behind Frank Gore. With Hunter out, Brandon Jacobs and rookie LaMichael James will likely see more touches to close out the regular season and into the playoffs.

I wonder how much Vilma made on that hit?

Just a guess, $5,000.

Too bad for Hunter, he was having a nice season, but the 9ers run game might be better with the other two.

At least they have some depth at the RB position.
