Giants released WR Mario Manningham with an injury settlement.
Manningham was on injured reserve with a calf issue. Not the same since tearing his ACL in 2012, Manningham will likely struggle to find a new home. Now 28, he caught 51 passes in 18 combined games for the 49ers in 2012-13. Tue, Sep 30, 2014 06:27:00 PM

Giants placed WR Mario Manningham (calf) and KR Trindon Holliday (hamstring) on injured reserve, ending their seasons.

Manningham was unlikely to make the final 53-man roster. He may be released with an injury settlement. Holliday missed all of Giants' camp with a hamstring injury.

ESPN New York doesn't expect Mario Manningham to make the Giants' 53-man roster.

Manningham survived the first-round of cuts, but his roster spot remains tenuous. Victor Cruz, Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham are locked in as the Giants' top three receivers, with Jerrel Jernigan and UDFA Corey Washington strong bets to make the team. Manningham has just two catches for 22 yards this preseason. He's on the outside looking in.

Mario Manningham caught one pass for five yards in Friday's preseason game.

Manningham's second-quarter grab was his lone target of the night. The 2012 Super Bowl hero has just two catches for 22 yards through four preseason games. He appears to be on the outside looking in of the 53-man roster.

Mario Manningham has been running mostly with the third-team offense at training camp and is "on the cut line."

Manningham is probably on the outside looking in at a roster spot. He's not the same playmaker since wrecking his knee and doesn't play special teams. UDFA WRs Marcus Harris and Corey Washington have been working ahead of Manningham in practice. Manningham, 28, may be nearing the end of the line.

Mario Manningham (knee) will be "limited" for the start of Giants camp, but has avoided the active/PUP list.

The same is true for LT Will Beatty (leg) and OG John Jerry (knee). It means the trio is close to full participation, and should be ready for the preseason.

Marion Manningham (knee) will be sidelined until training camp.

Manningham has been working on the side at OTAs as he continues to try and get right after tearing his ACL in Week 16 of 2012. Having just turned 28 and not contributing much the past year or so, anything the Giants get from Manningham would be a bonus. He's merely competing for a 53-man roster spot.
Thu, May 29, 2014 12:46:00 PM

Speaking in a Monday radio interview, Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Mario Manningham (knee) is "not 100 percent," and "not ready."

Coughlin did say that Manningham had bulked up. Manningham went down in Week 16 of the 2012 season. He returned last Week 10, making nine catches in six games for the 49ers before a setback with his surgically-repaired knee sent him to injured reserve. Whatever contributions Manningham makes this season will be a bonus. He isn't guaranteed a spot on the 53-man roster.

Giants signed WR Mario Manningham, formerly of the 49ers, to a one-year contract.

Manningham, 28 in May, underwent a physical with the Giants on Monday, so the medical staff must have been happy with the status of his surgically-repaired left knee. After a two-year detour with the 49ers, Manningham is back with the Giants, with whom he spent the first four seasons of his career. He'll compete for No. 4 receiver duties and won't be guaranteed a roster spot.

The Charlotte Observer names free agent Mario Manningham as a "guy to keep an eye on" for the Panthers.

Beat writer Joe Person is simply connecting the dots. Manningham and GM Dave Gettleman know each other from their Giants days. Manningham is actually visiting the G-Men on Monday. He'd be an extremely underwhelming addition to a depleted Panthers receiving corps. Manningham's left knee appears to be shot. Realistically, he isn't much better than what Carolina already has.
Mon, Mar 17, 2014 06:33:00 PM

The Giants will host free agent Mario Manningham on Monday.

Manningham has obvious history with the Giants' organization, but it's unclear what's left in his tank after recurring knee problems stemming from a torn left ACL and PCL suffered in late December of 2012. Manningham could be a situational deep threat in new playcaller Ben McAdoo's West Coast offense.
Sun, Mar 16, 2014 05:14:00 PM

Free agent Mario Manningham (left knee) is reportedly doing well and "will definitely be ready for the offseason program."

Manningham was placed on injured reserve on December 27 with a "bothersome" left knee, likely stemming from the multi-knee-ligament tear he suffered late in 2012. Unlikely to return to San Francisco, Manningham may have to settle for a minimum-salary contract offer to resurface elsewhere in 2014. A third receiver at best, the 27-year-old has injury and production red flags.

49ers placed WR Mario Manningham (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Look for rookie Quinton Patton to get a long look for San Francisco's third receiver role in Week 17 against Arizona. Manningham tore multiple knee ligaments late in the 2012 season and recently suffered a setback. His 2013 season ends with nine receptions for 85 yards among six appearances, starting three. Manningham is an impending free agent and long shot to return to the 49ers in 2014. There is some fear his career could be in jeopardy.
Fri, Dec 27, 2013 04:20:00 PM

49ers coach Jim Harbaugh conceded Friday that Mario Manningham (knee) is unlikely to play in Week 17 against the Cardinals.

Manningham was downgraded to "out" in Thursday's practice after participating on a limited basis Wednesday. He also missed Week 16, and appears to be dealing with a setback after tearing multiple knee ligaments late in 2012. The 49ers will move forward with Michael Crabtree bookending Anquan Boldin.

Mario Manningham (knee) was downgraded to "out" in Thursday's practice.

Manningham was spotted trying to give things a go at the start of practice, but quickly pulled himself out. It appears he'll miss his second straight game Sunday. Manningham should be considered questionable for the playoffs.
