Niner Talk Bonus: Crabtree and Manningham

Posted Oct 30, 2013

Michael Crabtree and Mario Manningham's rehab strides, the atmosphere at Wembley Stadium and more bonus questions from this week's "Niner Talk."


It's the bye week for the players, but not for the good folks at 49ers Studios.

With that in mind, we bring to you the latest episode of "Niner Talk," the show that answers your Twitter questions right here on 49ers.com. Each week we're flooded with questions from the team's Faithful fans. Many of them focus on the health of wide receivers Michael Crabtree and Mario Manningham.

We can only answer a handful of questions each week, but we're happy to unveil a bonus Q&A series for our fans. If your question wasn't answered in the video above, we'll do our best to touch on different topics in a weekly online mailbag.



The answer from Jim Harbaugh is "soon." Manningham caught a practice touchdown in England and it sparked a team-wide celebration. The 49ers released veteran Marlon Moore on Wednesday, perhaps clearing the way for Manningham to join the team's 53-man roster prior to a Nov. 10 home matchup with the Carolina Panthers.



Absolutely. So was Colin Kaepernick. The 49ers quarterback gave love to the team's fan base after the team's fifth-straight win. You could definitely hear the suppoert inside of Wembley and it felt like that everywhere we went. I saw a lot of red uniforms and appreciated all the kindness and hospitality we experienced in the UK.


I really hope so. But I would also warn that the key to having a top-notch advantage at Candlestick is knowing when to make noise. When Kaepernick is running a two-minute drill on offense - that's the time to be quiet. When Russell Wilson is on the field - that's the time to make a lot of noise.


Harbaugh said Crabtree's return at the end of the season is "doable." San Francisco's head coach previously said mid-to-late November would be a good starting point for Crabtree's return. The 49ers are pleased with Crabtree's rehab work after suffering an Achilles tear in Organized Team Activities. Crabtree has been with the team all season and has traveled to road games, even last week's stay in England.


I think it would be NaVorro Bowman. He's been known to be a lock-down defender during his AAU days and is even unafraid of playing Coach Harbaugh in a locker room pickup game.

Easy. Merton Hanks' funky-chicken dance. That never gets old.


Thanks everyone for the questions. We'll talk again next week.
