Mario Manningham placed on IR, ending fantasy season

USA TODAY Sports

The Niners placed Manningham on IR, officially ending his season. We break down the fantasy implications.

The San Francisco 49ers have officially placed WR Mario Manningham (knee) on injured reserve, ending his 2012 season. The move is more of a formality as Manningham tore his ACL and PCL in the Sunday night blowout against Seattle. The 49ers promoted DT Tony Jerod-Eddie from the practice squad to take his place.

Manningham finishes his season with 42 catches for 449 yards and one touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: It's now a race against the clock as Manningham will try to finish his rehab in time for the 2013 season. There is no set timetable yet, but eight months is usually in the ballpark.

The Niners have big depth issues at WR heading into the playoffs. They will roll with Randy Moss, Ted Ginn and A.J. Jenkins behind Michael Crabtree.
