SANTA CLARA — San Francisco 49ers wide receiver and return man Kyle Williams said Monday he will miss the rest of the season with a torn ligament in his left knee sustained in Sunday's win at New Orleans.

Williams posted on his Twitter account that he has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the knee. Surgery would be the likely next step.

"Regret to inform y'all I will be out for the season with a torn ACL," Williams tweeted. "Not how I saw things playing out. This is just another obstacle I will have to climb to get back. Looking forward to the challenge!! Love all true fans your prayers are much appreciated."

Coach Jim Harbaugh provided no updates Monday, but did say it appeared Williams was hurt before any contact was made when his foot stuck in the ground.

"We'll see. We haven't got the final report and we'd wait 'til we get that before we brief Kyle and some of the others," Harbaugh said. "It was a hard-hitting game. It took a toll."
