San Francisco 49ers nose guard Ian Williams broke his ankle during a 29-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Williams got hurt on a cut block by J.R. Sweezy that raised the ire of 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis.

Now, Glenn Dorsey will replace Williams in the starting lineup.

"I feel like as a linebacker or a D-lineman, any cut, it's a man sport -- be a man, hit me up high," Willis told reporters. "Hit like rams. You don't see a ram going and cutting another ram's legs. They hit head to head, pad to pad.

"I feel like that's something the league should look into more. You see some of that stuff, and it's uncalled for. You have a guy who's 300 pounds cutting a guy who's 250 pounds. Do physics to that. Hit the man up high. It should be a good collision."
