Found December 16, 2012 on 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.
