The San Francisco 49ers' injury woes clearly caught up to them in Week 6. San Fran dropped a winnable matchup against the Atlanta Falcons by a surprising margin of 28-14.

However, the 49ers received some good news on the injury front after the contest.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan said postgame that star offensive tackle Trent Williams "could" return in Week 7. It's not a guarantee, but the fact Shanhan is already talking about this possibility is a great sign.

Williams last suited up for the Niners in Week 3 against the Denver Broncos. He departed that contested with a high-ankle sprain that's sidelined him since.

The 49ers have certainly felt Williams' absence. He's been a stud on the O-line, posting grades of 78 in pass and run blocking this year, according to ProFootballFocus. Williams also hasn't allowed a sack across 182 snaps.

Though Sunday's loss stings, San Francisco should be able to bounce back in Week 7 with several injured players eyeing a return. They'll need everyone they can get ahead of a huge game on the road against the Kansas City Chiefs.
