49ers LB Willis to be game time decision
(AP) — Patrick Willis will be a game-time decision Sunday when the San Francisco 49ers host the St. Louis Rams.
The playmaking linebacker missed the 49ers' loss in Denver two weeks ago with a big toe injury.
Willis does not suffer from turf toe, a severe injury that sidelined cornerback Tramaine Brock for five games and who remains questionable this week, but the injury does affect Willis every time he takes a step.
The seven-time Pro Bowl linebacker is one of the reasons the 49ers remain in the upper echelon of the NFL in defensive rankings despite missing two key linebackers in the injured NaVarro Bowman and the suspended Aldon Smith.
Rookie linebacker Chris Borland started in place of Willis against the Broncos and will fill the void again should Willis be unable to go.
Rookie center Marcus Martin gets his opportunity to start against the Rams due to a season-ending injury to Daniel Kilgore.
The 49ers will be using their fifth starting combination along the offensive line after two years of relative stability.
Harbaugh gave a visual in response to what makes WR Stevie Johnson elusive to defensive backs.
A former adjunct professor at Columbia Business School has been charged with bilking investors including a former student out of $3 million.
U. S. Attorney Preet Bharara says Rorke "grossly misrepresented his character and financial stability" to investors in his software company.
With Chicago's chilling winds howling in the background, tightrope walker Nik Wallenda declared Friday he's ready to attempt two back-to-back skyscraper crossings, one of them blindfolded.
City officials said they've decided a state law requiring safety nets for aerial acts higher than 20 feet wasn't intended for "elite" performers like him.
 Wallenda will walk uphill at a 15-degree angle from the nearly 600-foot Marina City west tower, one of the twin corncob-shaped buildings, across the Chicago River to the top of the Leo Burnett Building.
Chicago officials consider the event like any other film or TV production in the city, said Mary May, spokeswoman for the city's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events.
Officials have been helping coordinate permits, road closures and troubleshooting logistics with the telecast's production team.
A man who was convicted of beating his girlfriend's parents to death with a sledgehammer should be executed, a jury said Friday.
After hearing arguments from prosecutors and defense lawyers, the Summit County jury that convicted Shawn Ford Jr. of aggravated murder last week recommended he be given the death sentence for killing 59-year-old Margaret Schobert.
Ford's attorneys argued that he can't legally face the death penalty because of his low IQ.
Montana Gov. Steve Bullock said Friday health officials will monitor people returning to the state from areas of West Africa affected by the Ebola virus and those who may have been in contact with an Ebola patient.
"If anyone should develop any symptoms, the health department will focus on patient safety, medical-provider safety and public safety throughout the course of treatment," Crowe said.
Governors in New Jersey and New York have been criticized for ordering mandatory quarantines for people arriving from West African countries where the outbreak has sickened more than 13,000 people and killed nearly 5,000.
Three U. S. citizens missing for more than two weeks have been found shot to death in Mexico near the border city of Matamoros, and authorities are questioning a local police unit about possible involvement, the attorney general in northern Tamaulipas state said Thursday.
