He'll be ready by week 3, even longer if Jenkins and Patton step up.

That's the ideal situation... I see it differently, I see our passing game consisting of:

  1. Davis
  2. Boldin
  3. Williams
  4. McDonald
  5. James
  6. Jenkins / Patton
Rotoworld is also reporting that he is not expected to be back until late August. They posted this on June 22nd.

LOL if the Niners are going to rely on Manningham to any degree whatsoever. He is a non factor IMO. Fragile as all get out.

With or without him, the Niners will not skip a beat.

I think Jenkins stepping up and the addition of Patton will more or less make Manningham irrelevant. I don't see him being much of a factor one way or the other.
That's just crazy! Manningham is a proven vet while those two rookies and Jenkins are unproven! Rookie receivers, historically, are slow to adapt to the NFL.

Meh, he's a quality #3 WR, hardly irreplaceable. This whole things smacks of those people who freaked out when Josh Morgan walked away. I think the 49ers will be fine with Jenkins having another year under his belt and Patton being able to contribute with his playmaking ability.
This is great news. I thought for certain Mario Manningham would be gone until midseason. The fact that he could be ready by week 1 is good news. With that said, although I'd like for him to be fully healed, I hope we don't absolutely need him early on. The fact that both Crabtree and Manningham are out of the picture for the moment pretty much pushes the younger receivers into the deep end and we will find out whether or not they will sink or swim.
I know a few of you guys are on the inside and privy to some very special information, but I'm going to have to go with Rotoworld and the Niner doctors on this one. Manningham is active by week one!

You're talking about replacing a seasoned Vet that's made huge plays in the biggest of games with 2 guys that have a combined zero catches in the NFL. I don't consider Manningham a superstar, but let's not pretend he's some scrub that any young WR could replace with ease.

Once again, healthy does not mean ready to play.

If Mario comes back healthy, he is 3rd option IMO. Will be interesting, I am not 100% happy at PR, I dont trust an inexeperienced Williams. i hope Patton could prove something. I like Hunter and James at 2nd and 3rd RB and KRs. McDonald will be a huge upgrade IMO, Delanie will be forgotten.

Yea, plus he and Kap had some chemistry brewing before he got hurt. I expect Manningham to step into the slot as soon as he's healthy.
I never believed in forcing younger players into action ...but this time I am all in favor of getting Patton & Jenkins on the field as much as possible during pre-season , they need a lot of work to polish their game for opening day

Agreed...why rush him back if AJ/Patton/Lockette show "anything" opposite Boldin? Based on our own history, we just don't rush players back...at all! And we don't run many 3 (or 3+) WR formations. The mass majority will be 2 WR's with multiple back sets (esp. from the Q formation) and with McDonald, I expect to see even more two-TE sets.

In short, the WR opposite of Boldin isn't going to get much action and the slot (esp. if VD lines up out wide as well in various formations), may even had less than him. That said, given Roman's propensity to create space underneath, despite being on the field less, it's "possible" the slot WR ends up with more yards than the X WR.

agree with most of what AB says esp about walker i forgot him already. i think we are fine at kick return, we got williams, hunter and james,, plus anything the kids can bring to the table will be gravy. the punt return thing only bothers me from a standpoint of who beside kyle can do it. I am fine with kyle and last year in his short body of work, he never screwed up and he was better than "lets catch the ball and run five yards out of bounds ginn". the back up worries me, I guess james is working on it but he needs alot of work,. That is why , like ab,, i think someone like patton, jenkins and my man moore can step up in this area.
