The San Francisco 49ers have been dealing with injuries all season long, especially on the offensive end. On November 4, they activated wide receiver Mario Manningham and cornerback Eric Wright. The 49ers have had offensive struggles all season long and they have been without their best two receivers this season, Michael Crabtree and Mario Manningham.
According to Bill Williamson of ESPN.com, Manningham will help the 49ers immediately:
The San Francisco 49ers activated wide receiver Mario Manningham and cornerback Eric Wright on Monday and placed cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha on waivers.
By activating Wright, the 49ers no longer need the services of Nnamdi Asomugha, who was trying to revive his career in San Francisco, but has not played since September 22. The addition of Wright will solidify the cornerback position and make the San Francisco defense even stronger.
Manningham will have the bigger impact of the two, Colin Kaepernick has surely missed some talented recievers so far this season and the Niners have had to rely on the running game. If the 49ers plan to make another Super Bowl run, they will need some vertical threat to go along with their powerful running attack.
As for Asomugha, the veteran cornerback will hit the waiver wire in hopes of a team taking a chance on the four-time All-Pro after two failed stints with the Philadelphia Eagles and 49ers.
