49ers vs. Dolphins injury report: Mario Manningham misses second straight day of practice

Ezra Shaw

We break down the 49ers and Dolphins injury report, focusing on Mario Manningham's absence.

The 49ers and Dolphins released their second practice participation reports of the week and the big news remains Mario Manningham. The 49ers wide receiver missed his second straight day of practice as he continues to nurse a shoulder injury. He suffered the injury in October, and aggravated it on Sunday against the Rams.

The 49ers have one more day of practice on Friday, after which they will release their final injury report. I would imagine whatever Manningham's status in tomorrow's practice, he will be listed as no better than questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

If Manningham ends up sitting out, A.J. Jenkins and Ted Ginn Jr. would seem to be battling for playing time. Ginn got the snaps last week, but a less than stellar performance would seem to open up some opportunities for Jenkins, even if Manningham plays.

Of course, it will also be interesting to see what a Manningham injury could mean for Randy Moss. They do different things on the field, but maybe Moss gets worked into the game plan a little bit. There are a whole host of possibilities if Manningham is unable to play.
