The San Francisco 49ers could use some help at wide receiver. That entire burden of offense has fallen on the shoulders of Anquan Boldin and Vernon Davis. Wide receiver Mario Manningham tore ligaments in his knee late in the 2012 season and he is still trying to make his way back onto the field.
“Just taking it day-by-day, seeing how it goes,” Manningham said, via the 49ers website. “I’m not sure, because I don’t how I’m going to feel. If I feel good I might play. I’m not putting a time limit on there, just taking it serious day-by-day.”
“I’m just doing what I’ve got to do to get back to 100 (percent),” said Manningham “Be patient – come back stronger. Every day you wake up, you have to think you’re going to come back stronger than you left.”
Thew 49ers could use him to. They have the 31st ranked pass offense and are averaging only 191 yards per game. Aside from Boldin and Davis there aren’t any other real threats. 85 of Kaepernick’s 161 passes have gone their way.
When he does return he’ll be ready to go.
“I’m getting confident,” Manningham said. “By the time I step out there on Sunday, I’ll be 100.”
He just doesn’t know when that will be.
“Nope. Just know it’ll be Sunday, I don’t know when.”
