Quinton Patton (concussion) is active for Week 5 against the Giants.

Patton was cleared after practicing on a limited basis this week. He'll play in three-wide sets behind Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith. The 49ers inactives are TE Vernon Davis, OLB Ahmad Brooks, WR DeAndrew White, RB Mike Davis, LB Gerald Hodges, OG Ian Silberman, and NT Mike Purcell.

Quinton Patton (questionable, concussion) is expected to play in Sunday night's Week 5 game against the Giants.

Patton didn't get in any team reps this week, but is expected to be cleared. Even with Vernon Davis sidelined, Patton isn't more than the No. 3 pass-game option.
Oct 9 - 7:27 PM

Quinton Patton (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.

Patton is in the league concussion protocol. Bruce Ellington will pick up Patton's snaps if he doesn't get cleared.
Oct 7 - 5:35 PM

49ers WR Quinton Patton suffered a concussion Week 4 against the Packers.

Patton caught two passes for 53 yards against Green Bay. Patton will have to pass through the league's concussion protocol before returning.
Oct 4 - 9:56 PM

Quinton Patton caught 2-of-2 targets for 53 yards in San Francisco's Week 4 loss to the Packers.

Patton was a lone bright spot for San Fran in a 17-3 loss, looking like he was shot out of a cannon on both his catches. The 2013 fourth-rounder now has seven grabs for 85 yards. Patton is currently wholly without fantasy value, but that could change if Anquan Boldin got traded.
Oct 4 - 8:32 PM

Quinton Patton caught one pass for eight yards in the 49ers' third preseason game.

Patton operated as the 49ers' third receiver, but that did not get him many snaps with the first-team offense. San Francisco ran a lot of two-wide formations with FB Bruce Miller or an extra tight end on the field. With an uncertain workload on an offense poised to struggle, Patton is well off the redraft radar.
Aug 30 - 12:17 AM

The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows said WR Quinton Patton is being given "every opportunity" to win the 49ers' No. 3 receiver competition.

With Jerome Simpson suspended to start the year, Patton has a leg up on Bruce Ellington, who has missed the last two weeks with a leg strain. UDFA DeAndrew White has played well in camp, but he is a long-shot to pass Patton on the depth chart.
Aug 20 - 11:31 AM

49ers wide receivers coach Ronald Curry said third-year WR Quinton Patton will get a "real opportunity" this season.

"Quinton Patton has always flashed," Curry said. "He’s always been dedicated, he’s always been focused, he’s always worked hard, he’s smart and it’s going to be interesting to see how he does in this camp." With Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith firmly entrenched atop the depth chart, Patton will compete with Bruce Ellington and Jerome Simpson for snaps in three-wide sets.

Quinton Patton believes he's playing with more confidence this offseason.

"Totally different," Patton said. "I'm not going to say it's my time, but I'm coming." Patton spent several weeks training with Colin Kaepernick in Arizona and has reportedly stood out during OTAs. With Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith locked in on the outside, Patton, Bruce Ellington, and Jerome Simpson are competing for the 49ers’ No. 3 receiver job.
May 22 - 8:02 PM

49ers GM Trent Baalke singled out third-year WR Quinton Patton as a player having "an excellent offseason."

Baalke mentioned the speed the 49ers' offense has now that Patton is healthy and with the additions of Torrey Smith, Jerome Simpson, and Reggie Bush. Smith and Anquan Boldin are locked in as the 49ers' top two wideouts, but the No. 3 spot figures to come down to Patton, Simpson, and pint-sized Bruce Ellington. Patton runs good routes, has good hands, and can play inside and outside.
May 13 - 11:22 AM

49ers GM Trent Baalke referred to third-year WR Quinton Patton as "a young player that hasn't gotten an opportunity."

"Now's his opportunity. Let's see what he can do," Baalke said. The 49ers' depth chart is wide open behind Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith, as the technically-sound Patton would only have to beat out Bruce Ellington for No. 3 duties. That could change by next week with Baalke likely to draft a receiver.
Apr 27 - 12:11 PM

49ers WR Quinton Patton's lone Week 17 target went for a 35-yard catch.

Patton ends his sophomore NFL season with just three catches. He played behind Anquan Boldin, Michael Crabtree, Stevie Johnson, and Brandon Lloyd. Patton was a fairly intriguing prospect coming out of Louisiana Tech for his route-running chops, but he will likely enter 2015 training camp on the roster bubble.

Quinton Patton caught 2-of-6 targets for nine yards Week 16 against the Chargers.

Patton saw extended time with Michael Crabtree (knee) sidelined, but failed to do much with the work. Patton's most notable play of the game was an overtime fumble that set the Chargers up for a game-winning field goal.

49ers declared WR Quinton Patton, OT Anthony Davis, NT Glenn Dorsey, CB Tramaine Brock, WR Bruce Ellington, QB Josh Johnson, and TE Vance McDonald inactive for Week 12 against the Redskins.

A non-factor all year, Patton has fallen behind Stevie Johnson and Brandon Lloyd in addition to Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree.
