49ers Lose Mario Manningham To Torn ACL

Wide receiver Mario Manningham tore his ACL and PCL Sunday night in Seattle, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. That obviously means Manningham won’t play in the playoffs, and a torn ACL this late in the year could affect Manningham into the 2013 season as well.

That hurts for San Francisco: Manningham is second on the team with 42 catches and third on the team with 449 receiving yards. Manningham will be the second 49ers receiver to go on injured reserve this month, following Kyle Williams.
