Mario Manningham expected to practice this week

According to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com,  the 49ers expect wide receiver Mario Manningham to start practicing this week after spending the first six weeks of the season on the PUP list after tearing his ACL last season.

Mario Manningham, the 49ers’ second-leading wide receiver last season, will likely begin practicing after sustaining torn knee ligaments Dec. 23 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Manningham, veteran cornerback Eric Wright and rookie defensive linemen Tank Carradine and Quinton Dial are eligible to begin practicing this week after spending the first six games of the season on the sideline.
