The sixth-year veteran wide receiver joined his teammates for a Tuesday walk-through but doesn’t expect to be a full practice participant this week.
Manningham who suffered torn knee ligaments in Week 16 of the 2012 season doesn’t plan on rushing back into a game. The 49ers visit the Tennessee Titans this Sunday.
“Just taking it day-by-day seeing how it goes” Manningham said at his locker.
The 49ers wideout doesn’t have an exact timetable for his return either. The 49ers have a bye week after a Week 8 road game in London against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Manningham wouldn’t say if he’s eyeing a Week 10 home contest against the Carolina Panthers as his possible return game.
“I’m not sure because I don’t how I’m going to feel” he said. “If I feel good I might play. I’m not putting a time limit on there just taking it serious day-by-day.”
For now Manningham said he would only participate in a couple periods of Wednesday’s practice and see how his left knee responds.
