07:25 AM ET 01.27 | Like a number of NFL stars, linebacker Patrick Willis declined an invitation to the Pro Bowl, but his absence could have been more excused than most. [Willis] appears to have undergone a procedure on his left hand or thumb. Willis, who celebrated his 29th birthday on Saturday, posted photos on his Instagram account that showed him with a cast on his left hand. Willis sat out the entire exhibition season after sustaining a fractured right hand during a practice early in training camp. Willis played in 14 games, missing two games due to a groin injury. It is uncertain whether Willis sustained the injury in the 49ers' 23-17 season-ending loss to the Seattle Seahawks. He was not listed on the injury report leading up to the 49ers' final game. Willis' hand is not expected to keep him out of the 49ers' offseason program.

Hand puns are about all we can expect in this thread, not a very interesting story.

I guess the interns feel Patrick's handsome
