Found May 25, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
The San Francisco 49ers took a major hit before offseason workouts really ramped up, as the team announced last week that wide receiver Michael Crabtree will miss the next six months with a torn Achilles. Considering the absence of Crabtree, the return of fellow wide out Mario Manningham is all the more important. Manningham is progressing through his rehab for a knee injury he suffered late last season. While he hasn’t set an exact timeframe for his return, the wide receiver is happy with the progress he’s made, as he’s now running and cutting on the knee, according to 49ers.com. “I have started and running cutting and doing little things,” Manningham said, a key development in his recovery. “When you have knee injuries, you can’t really take any time off,” the 6-foot, 185-pound wide out said. “Every time I think about it, I'm trying to do something with my knee. I’m not rushing it but I am going hard on my knee.” Manningham won’t set a return target until he’s fully cleared to resume football-related activities, but coach John Harbaugh believes the receiver will be sidelined through the start of training camp. Manningham suffered a torn ACL and PCL late last season, his first with the 49ers. Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?

Happy Hour – Crabtree Injury Is A Blow, But Not Death Knell for 49ers

When I first heard about Michael Crabtree’s torn Achilles yesterday, I imagine I had the same reaction as many 49ers fans, sadness.

The addition of Anquan Boldin was only going to make things easier for Crabtree, and 100 catches was a real possibility. Now, chances are he will miss...
