The San Francisco 49ers receiving corps is already woefully short-handed without Michael Crabtree and Mario Manningham in the lineup. Now they’re down another receiver for Colin Kaepernick to work with against the St. Louis Rams.
Rookie Quinton Patton left the game in the second quarter and was taken to the locker room for evaluation. The 49ers announced that Patton had suffered a foot injury and was questionable to return to the game.
Patton is still seeking his first catch in a regular season game for the 49ers. He has been shutout in the 49ers’ first three games of the season and was targeted just once before leaving with the injury.
