Patrick Willis is in no rush to return from his injured right hamstring, a rehabilitation plan he calls "being smart."
The 49ers have been quiet about the progress of Willis, who told the team's official website he hasn't had any setbacks but still has no timetable for a return.
âHonestly, these last couple of weeks, Iâve done everything the trainers have asked me to do. Weâre just taking it one day at a time and being smart,â Willis said Tuesday. âEach day my whole mindset is to get better, no setbacks. Weâve certainly done that and weâre just going to continue to work.â
Willis has missed the last two games and hasn't practiced since the injury in Week 13. But when he does return, Willis promises he'll be 100 percent.
âWhen they pull the chains off, Iâll come back just as strong as when I left, if not better," he said.
