49ers’ Manningham To Play Against Panthers

49ers_Mario_Manningham_2012The most interesting aspect of the 49ers’ injury report for Sunday’s game against the Panthers is a player who isn’t on it: Mario Manningham.

Manningham, the receiver who hasn’t played since tearing his ACL on December 23, is not listed on the injury report at all. If there were any possibility of his knee injury keeping him out of Sunday’s game, the 49ers would at least need to list him as probable.

The 49ers activated Manningham from the physically unable to perform list this week. He’s expected to be on a snap count, but that’s more a matter of conditioning than concern that his knee is structurally weak.
