Quinton Patton progressing from broken foot

Michael Crabtree and Mario Manningham aren’t the only receivers the San Francisco 49ers expect to return to the lineup in the coming weeks.

Rookie Quinton Patton has been sidelined since Week 4 with a broken foot suffered against the St. Louis Rams. The 49ers have kept Patton on their active roster in hopes he’d be able to return to the field this season.

According to Bill Williamson of ESPN.com, Patton has recently shed his walking boot and head coach Jim Harbaugh is confident Patton will make it back.

I anticipate he’ll be playing again,” Harbaugh said of the promising rookie. “I think ahead of schedule for Quinton.”

The addition of the three receivers to the 49ers attack will be a big boost for a team that has already won their last five games by at least 12 points or more.

    So he won’t be cut and then picked up to play QB for the Packers?

    Perhaps when he comes back Kaepernick will throw for over 200 yards. Doubt it.

    Kap has about a 122 QB rating throwing to Davis and Boldin, and about a 60 rating with the rest of the receivers. Good hands make a huge difference. Having a possession receiver in Manningham back will make a substantial difference in the passing game, and having Patton and Crabtree back will put the receiver corps in elite status. And having that additional receiver threat will benefit the running game as well.

    Aldon Smith is back, and Tank Carradine is getting ready to shore up the D Line. If they get the chemistry right, this team could explode!
