Quinton Patton expected to miss a lot of time with a broken foot

49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh told reporters that rookie Quinton Patton  is “going to miss some time,” after breaking his foot during their big win over the Rams on Thursday night.

This is the last thing the 49ers need as they continue to look for their young receivers to step up in the absence of Mario Manningham Michael Crabtree.

It’s been obvious over the past few weeks that San Francisco’s passing game is almost non-existent.  They certainly looked better on Thursday night, but they still have a lot of issues going forward.
