NFL Injury Report:
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Mario Manningham has
officially been ruled out by the team for tonight’s contest against the New
England Patriots, reports Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area.
In fact, while I was in the air Saturday on the trip from
San Francisco to Boston, the 49ers made it official: Manningham will not
play Sunday against the New England Patriots due to his shoulder injury.
Manningham was able to practice at a limited capacity on
Wednesday and Thursday, but his injured shoulder kept him sidelined during
Friday’s session. His injury also kept him out of last weekend’s victory over
the Miami Dolphins
On the season Manningham has caught 41 passes for 449 yards
and one touchdown.
With Manningham not being able to play tonight against the
Patriots, No. 2 tight end Delanie Walker, fullback Bruce Miller and wide
receiver Randy Moss will all see more playing time, according to Maiocco. He
adds that rookie A.J. Jenkins could also see time in three-receiver sets like
he did last weekend.
